Summary
"[The authors] draw on findings by behavioral scientists, advice from world-class comedians, and stories from real-life business leaders to reveal how humor works and--more important--how you can make greater and better use of it ... [U]npacks the theory and application of humor: what makes something funny, how to mine your life for material, and how to craft a joke. Shows how to use humor to make a strong first impression, deliver difficult feedback, and foster cultures where levity and creativity can thrive. And explores the gray areas of humor: how to keep it appropriate-and recover if you cross a line"--
