I'm glad I got this book because it can teach you how to build up your sense of humor and not just share jokes. This is the purpose in why I got it so I could understand certain jokes that people have told that I do not understand. For people who want to work on their sense of humor need this book!

This is a fairly interesting book on humor. Along the way, there is a good sampling of jokes and humorous stories. Based on the title and previous reviews, I was prepared for this and was not disappointed.

What prompted me to write this negative review was something not mentioned elsewhere: the unexpected, heavy-handed proselytizing for what appears to be an Evangelical form of Christianity. I have knowingly bought and read with pleasure dozens of books on aspects of Christianity, so I'm not opposed to the subject matter itself. But this book crossed the line from honest persuasion to sneaky promotion of a hidden agenda.

I didn't mind that, over a series of chapters, the book brought up the subject of performance anxiety and then claimed to cover some psychology in order to discuss it more deeply. But I certainly minded that the "psychology" turned out to depend on accepting Jesus as the ONLY way to achieving peace and therefore being able to tell funny stories without fear.

I wouldn't have objected if the authors had presented the book from the beginning as a Christian approach to humor - or even if they had simply described their spiritual experience as a way to explain what had helped them. In that case, I might still have read the book and even recommended it.

But when, a hundred pages into a discussion of how to tell funny stories, they claimed that they have the one answer to life's problems and then specifically asked me, the reader, to write to them requesting their materials on accepting their form of Christianity, I felt ambushed.

If you want an introduction to Christianity, there are many better books than this one. If you want books on humor, including issues of nervousness, there are many choices that don't abuse your interest by suggesting that you must change your religion in order to be all the joke teller you can be.

If you feel put off by being "preached at" (as opposed to being preached to), stay away from this book!

What was more valuable was the material on the theory of humor and delivery. You will probably pick up some good information here.

The thing that made this a two-star review was the dreadful theology, obviously picked up from the Word of Faith school of error. The Wrights start with the mistaken notion that man is made up of three parts (body, soul and spirit--Scripture uses the latter two terms synonymously) and then move to the outright heresy of saying that Jesus died spiritually on the cross. They should have stayed with the comedy advice and jokes.

So, be warned.

Ok, "if you are looking for a joke book this is not the right book for you." You're right, because it isn't a joke book, and doesn't claim to be. To quote the opening of chapter one:

"What do you think of us writing a book about using humor successfully?" we asked many of our friends.

"Another joke book?" some responded.

"No, a book about the importance of humor, as well as how to use it to persuade, entertain, resolve tension, settle, arguments and reach other people in a special way..."

The difference is that a regular joke book would have just that: jokes. This one takes a step back and looks at the 500 jokes given (which really were good) and takes a look at WHY they are funny. Not only did it turn out to be an interesting subject to study, it's also helps the reader to tell jokes better. It talks about how to keep jokes from falling flat, how to recover in case one actually does fall flat, how to come up with an impromtu, situations when a good joke would be useful and what kind would be best.

I really enjoyed the book, and laughed out loud all through it.

This book was alright. If you are looking for a joke book this is not the right book for you. It attempts to explain the theory behind the jokes which I personally felt kind of killed the book. It is fairly long and does not do a good job of holding the readers attention. If you are really that desperate to be funny you could read it otherwise I would look elsewhere.
