For the first time, the secrets of the ancient art of Judology are revealed. Think of it as the third cousin of Kabbalah. "Yes, but is it Good for the Jews?" is a hilarious and indispensable A-Z of world history and popular culture, measuring whether a wide variety of subjects are, in fact, Good for the Jews. We can reveal to the outside world (yes, Non-Jews are allowed to buy this book), the mathematical formula that determines whether someone or something is Good for the Jews. The Judological Institute of Spiritual Mathematics (or JISM) will show that while Guilt, Google and Star Wars are Good for the Jews, Sudoku and Colonic Irrigation are Not. In a whistlestop tour you'll also discover just what's right about "Big Brother", what's wrong about Madonna, what products you should avoid, and which ones you really should rush out and buy. Bonus features include a list of top Jews to marry (Scarlet Johanssen is Jewish!), a 'Jew or False' quiz and 'Ashamed of Your Name? Jews that Switched' - which reveals the original name of Kirk Douglas, among others. For the confused Gentile, a simple questionnaire 'How Jew are You?' may help.
(Remember, as the first Prime Minister of Israel himself said, 'Anyone meshugge enough to call himself a Jew, IS a Jew.')
