Great companion book to WorkLaughs 28 Dec. 2006
By Allen Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In a fun easy-to-read format, Paulson provides an excellent step-by-step way of adding humor

to the not-so-funny workplace. He also skillfully touches on the negative aspects of using humor

at work.

A great companion book to WorkLaughs: Quips, Quotes, and Anecdotes about Making a Buck.

(also available on Amazon).
Excellent resource to make work more fun and productive 17 Oct. 2008

Making Humor work is not another book to make you laugh. You will laugh, but that's not its purpose. It introduces you to the value of humor on the job. The appropriate use of humor will not only increase your personal and professional effectiveness, but also the prductivity of others.

This friendly, practical book will show you how to use humor to disarm anger, unlock the receptivity of others, and enhance communication. Learn for yourself why it is never a crime to have fun on the job.
Should be required reading for everyone entering the workforce 3 Aug. 2013
By Hungry Mind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Actually, it should also be read by kids entering their teens! The author's premise is spot-on: we take ourselves far too seriously. And this seriousness leads to all kinds of unnecessary conflict and drama, not only at work, but in LIFE.

Yes, there are a few corny illustrations/ideas in the mix, but the overall strategies (and mindset) of this book are very practical. If only every adult on the planet incorporated a little more humor in work and life, global prosperity would likely go up, while crime (and the use of antidepressants) would most certainly go down. Well, I can at least dream, right? Sigh...
