"

""Humor is complex, and the author, Mitch Earleywine, does an exceptional job of covering the big bases of humor from a research perspective in a small space with a readable content. When I first picked up this book and began reading it, I was looking for depth. What I found was an overview and at the same time a very exciting way to provide an entr?e into psychology?a vehicle for students to grab hold of topics central to psychology but studied and researched in terms of modern themes, and particularly humor.""--PsycCRITIQUES
