Why do random Jewish holidays keep springing up unexpectedly? Why are yarmulkes round? Who was the first Jewish comedian? These baffling questions and many more are answered by the comedic powerhouse duo of Adam Mansbach (“Go the F**k to Sleep” and “You Have to F*****g Eat”) and Alan Zweibel (“Saturday Night Live,” “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show,” “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm”).

In “A Field Guide to the Jewish People,” the authors dissect every holiday, rite of passage and tradition, unravel a long and complicated history and tackle the tough questions that have been plaguing the long-suffering Jewish people everywhere for centuries. So, gather round your chosen ones, pop open a bottle of Manischewitz and get ready to laugh as you finally begin to understand the inner workings of Judaism.
