Latest Humor Book
Do you experience stress? Are you interested in better health and well-being? Do you pursue happiness? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to read this book. If you answered no, you’re in denial. All of us can use a little help to become happier or healthier. Unfortunately, the help we get is often too scary: “if you don’t do this or that, some catastrophic event of epic proportions will happen.” Prilleltensky’s approach, in contrast, is to help you become healthier and happier through laughter. In this hilarious book, Prilleltensky combines humor with science to help you improve your well-being. Each chapter consists of the Laughing Side, a series of funny stories; and the Learning Side, a research-based, user-friendly guide to health and happiness. The first chapter provides an overview of well-being, while subsequent chapters cover each of its six domains: Interpersonal, Community, Occupational, Physical, Psychological, and Economic (I COPPE). When you finish the book you’ll have a greater understanding of your life, and ways to make it better. BUY IT NOW!

These are some comments about his latest humor book
This book is hilarious. It is so funny that you will be tempted to race through abstract advice about well-being and happiness to get to the next funny story and have another belly laugh. Do not race. You will miss the wisdom for the wit.
”Isaac’s book is hilarious. I believe if you can get people to laugh that means you’re getting them to listen, and when they listen, they learn. This book accomplishes all three of these things.”
"A Revelation! This is exactly what we need. The Laughing guide to Well-Being shows the one little changeable thing in our life – a better sense of humor – that can transform relationships, visions toward the future, and our health. But as we’ve gotten more prosperous over the years, we’ve also gotten more serious, skeptical, and snarky in our humor. Prilleltensky’s brilliant book shows how we can turn this around. There is no easier way to have a ripple across the rest of our lives than to realize that our laughing side is also our learning side."
"This is a disarmingly clever and humorous book that offers a rich array of wise advice on how to live a happier, healthier, more meaningful life in a topical and relevant way that makes you want more and more! The best part? The author shares many personal amusing stories from his own fascinating life! A brilliant and useful tool for everyone!"
"The capacity to laugh is essential to our well-being and needed more today than ever. This book provides the evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, that we each have the capacity to incorporate humor to strengthen our sense of well-being. Be good to yourself, read this book!"
"If you are suffering from ennui or boredom, or just looking to enrich your everyday life, you will find this book to be hysterically funny, inspirational, and educational. The authenticity and humanity of the author, Isaac Prilleltensky, permeates every passage so deeply that you will feel that you have found a great friend and mentor."
"Prilleltensky adeptly tackles the challenges that confront most humor scholars. How can the science of laughter be taken seriously? This book provides entertaining stories to illustrate and validate the psychology of humor as integral to the search for well-being."
"The Laughing Guide to Well-Being changed my life!!! I gained 2 hours a day of productive time by simply washing my Senokot down with pomegranate juice…who knew….Isaac did!!! You will learn and laugh; a great prescription for well-being."
"Who knew a self-help book could be funny, while being grounded in legitimate science; a guide to greater health or happiness, without being moralizing or prescriptive; or wise and insightful, without the self-directed blandishments from an author who can’t see himself having the same problems the rest of us have. Dr. Prilleltensky has managed to pull off this hat trick – and produce a book that is fun to read and deeply educational."
"This book is extremely funny and informative at the same time. If you want to improve your well-being while laughing out loud, read this book. Prilleltensky shows that you can do both!"
"Isaac Prilleltensky has been long admired for his wisdom and insight about psychology, social issues, and well-being. His new book shines a light on his talents as a humorist, which allows him to generate incisive observations about the nature of the human condition. Reading this book will make you laugh and also will give you pause as you consider the complicated journey to a life of well-being, connection, and meaning. By weaving together humor, psychological insights, and compassion, Professor Prilleltensky has created a brilliant book, one that has enormous heart and a deep soul."
"Reading Isaac Prilleltensky’s book is like having him as your own funny, irreverent, warm, and wise friend. For years, he’s been a scholarly mentor in matters of social equity and well-being; now he offers caring guidance in living a healthy, connected, good life -- all in the context of his hilarious observations of human nature (most often his own). Open and personal, informative but never preachy, Prilleltensky shows that we can take our wellness seriously without taking ourselves too seriously."
