Newcomers to Jeeves should avoid this volume. You are unlikely to find this in stores, anyhow. Published in 1919, My Man Jeeves collects a number of stories featuring Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, however they are embryonic, and several of the stories feature neither of them. All would be reworked and included in future short story collections. These are the first stories, written before and during WWI, when the young Wodehouse - having already published several novels and many short stories - was slowly figuring out these characters and their world. (Ironically, these are the only Jeeves stories written during an era when their content is remotely contemporary!)

The best option is to buy the modern omnibus The World of Jeeves which contains all of the stories in their "definitive" format.

Contains:
Leave it to Jeeves [later reworked as "The Artistic Career of Corky"]
Jeeves and the Unbidden Guest
Jeeves and the Hard-boiled Egg
The Aunt and the Sluggard
and four stories featuring the character of Reggie Pepper, which would be revised into Jeeves stories in the future. ( )

First of the Jeeves & Wooster stories, this collection is fun but only about half of the stories are Jeeves & Wooster. The rest are Reggie Pepper stories. Reggie Pepper is a sort of proto-Bertie, but there's no Jeeves (Reggie's valet Voules is nowhere near Jeeves), and I feel the stories suffer as a result. Without Jeeves, there is no neat/smart resolution to the troubles of Reggie Pepper and his friends, and the lack of a conclusion means the stories suffer when compared to the other stories that do have Jeeves in them. Still an enjoyable collection, but a bit rougher than later stories with Bertie and Jeeves. ( )

I like P. G. Wodehouse in general, but this recording didn't quite do it for me. I like Simon Prebbles, but he doesn't do fatuous, pompous, dumb, or ridiculous very well.Oh well. ( )

Charming, although I increasingly feel like every author who's described as "hilarious" is really more of a light chuckle. ( )

7 short stories, only 4 of which feature Wooster & Jeeves, and all those happen in the US. Also, the plots have their twists as usual, but the wordplay seems much weaker than one expects from the author. In short, Wodehouse not in his best form. ( )

Jeeves—my man, you know—is really a most extraordinary chap. So capable. Honestly, I shouldn’t know what to do without him. On broader lines he’s like those chappies who sit peering sadly over the marble battlements at the Pennsylvania Station in the place marked “Inquiries.” You know the Johnnies I mean. You go up to them and say: “When’s the next train for Melonsquashville, Tennessee?” and they reply, without stopping to think, “Two-forty-three, track ten, change at San Francisco.” And they’re right every time. Well, Jeeves gives you just the same impression of omniscience.

I'm a bit short on brain myself; the old bean would appear to have been constructed more for ornament than use, don't you know.
He's like one of those weird chappies in India who dissolve themselves into thin air and nip through space in a sort of disembodied way and assemble the parts again just where they want them. I've got a cousin who's what they call a Theosophist, and he says he's often nearly worked the thing himself, but couldn't quite bring it off, probably owing to having fed in his boyhood on the flesh of animals slain in anger and pie.
I was so darned sorry for poor old Corky that I hadn't the heart to touch my breakfast. I told Jeeves to drink it himself.
Jeeves smiled paternally. Or, rather, he had a kind of paternal muscular spasm about the mouth, which is the nearest he ever gets to smiling.
I'm not absolutely certain of my facts, but I rather fancy it's Shakespeare--or, if not, it's some equally brainy lad--who says that it's always just when a chappie is feeling particularly top-hole, and more than usually braced with things in general that Fate sneaks up behind him with a bit of lead piping. There's no doubt the man's right.
