Publisher's Summary

My Man Jeeves, first published in 1919, introduced the world to affable, indolent Bertie Wooster and his precise, capable valet, Jeeves. Some of the finest examples of humorous writing found in English literature are woven around the relationship between these two men of very different classes and temperaments. Where Bertie is impetuous and feeble, Jeeves is coolheaded and poised. This collection, the first book of Jeeves and Wooster stories, contains eight stories, including "Absent Treatment", "Helping Freddie", "Rallying Round Old George", "Doing Clarence a Bit of Good", "Fixing It for Freddie", and "Bertie Changes His Mind".

Corky, Rocky Todd ? the story begins splendidly

Rummy sort of a book this, what? I mean, I know squads of chappies wouldn?t touch it with a pair of extending sugar tongs. But then, as my Great Uncle Cleasant used to say, you can?t judge a book by the date of its library stamp. I mean, so far as Cless was concerned, he?d be less miffed by the fact that this appeared in 1919 than by the fact that old Pelham Grenville managed to slip at least three stories by that vagabond Reggie Pepper (son of the Colliery people) when you thought you were getting the full Jeeves and Wooster for your shilling. What a scamp, eh?
But, other than that, the gang?s all here ? Aunt Agatha, Corky, Rocky Todd and a setting that?s exclusively Manhattan, don?t you know. Station clerks peeping out over the battlements at Penn Station, the girls from 'Frolics at Midnight' and that scourge of musical comedy, the evangelist Jimmy Munday for heavens sake. Its one? long hoot from soup to nuts?The green dust jacket needs a little work, however, I?m sure you?ll agree, sir??

Disappointing

From the title I expected this would be Jeeves and Wooster stories. There are 8 chapters, only 4 are J and W. The rest are completely unknown and not interesting characters. So not really as described
