The Joker is shrouded in mystery. He is a myth, he is a legend. This story gives readers another backstory to the Joker. This is not his definite origin, no one will ever know that. This is one of those, "this could be it, but we'll never know" stories. It delves deeply into Joker's psyche, letting the audience know why he is so psychotic. You feel sorry for the character, for once, he is alone, maddened by his obsessions with murder, crime, and the Bat. He wants others to feel his insanity, pain, and misery. Within this story, he tries to put those feelings on Commishiner Gordon. If you love comics, Batman, DC, Alan Moore, or reading... pick this up. It is probably the only character study we will ever see in a Batman comic, at least the only good one.
