Ha! : the science of when we laugh and why?

The brick and mortar bookstore will always be a necessity for one simple reason – the golden opportunity of stumbling on what might be a gem while looking for something else. Recently I visited my local Barnes and Noble bookstore where I was greeted by a table of books announcing an author signing. How could I resist Ha! : the science of when we laugh and why? I bought a copy, read most of it, and returned for the signing event on Saturday.

While I didn’t get the sense from reading the book or talking to the author that this is by any means a “how to be funnier” book – Weems says his comedy experience is purely observational – the book does explain why some things are funnier than others. Can some of the things Weems’ mentions be incorporated into personal comedy? What good is it to me as one seeking to be funnier if it can’t be? At least I’ll give it a try!
