November 15, 2016 (FPRC) --Max Elliot Anderson announces the release of his new book, The Sense of Humor - Let Humor Fast Track You to Healthier, Happier Living, is available from Elk Lake Publishing. ISBN: 9781942513971 | ASIN: 1942513976

“April is National Humor Month,” Anderson said, “and kicks off on April Fool’s Day. During these uncertain times, what people need most is a good laugh. Imagine what would happen if we understood there is an untapped force, contained within us, that has the power to totally change our lives. And what if we discovered, all we had to do in order to unlock this secret, is to simply start using it?”

The New England Journal of Medicine estimates that 85% of all human illnesses are curable by the body’s own healing system. Recent data suggests the more positive input we can include in our lives, the more we are supporting our body’s ability to tap into its natural healing process.

The Sense of Humor is divided into two sections. The first explores the benefits of incorporating humor in medicine, relationships, the classroom, families, the workplace, by youth workers, pastors, counselors, and more. 

“This project began as a simple joke book,” Anderson continued. “But through my video production work with clients, I began to discover the healing value of laughter and humor plus the benefits being found in business and industry where humor was used.”

The second part of The Sense of Humor contains hundreds of jokes and humor arranged in sections that relate to each of the major subjects found in the first. 

Studies reveal that humor aids in the healing process. And a personal sense of humor helps combat stress and depression. In business, one of the primary traits the human resources department looks for is a healthy sense of humor in job applicants. People without a sense of humor aren’t expected to go far. 

A pastor notes, “Humor is disarming. It makes us deal with issues we wouldn’t face otherwise. Humor is more than a joke at the end of a sermon.” As one youth pastor puts it, “The way to a student’s heart is through his funny bone.” 

Education professionals tell us laughter encourages learning. Humor leads to an increase in attention span and it can help both the students and the teacher. Educators find, when used in teaching, humor promotes better retention, better understanding, along with more attentiveness and alertness. 

Research also demonstrates how humor can make sense in the life of anyone who is willing to use it. Outside of this primary benefit, humor touches the lives of everyone around the user in positive ways.

Max Elliot Anderson is best known for his many action-adventures and mysteries written for middle grade readers. The Sense of Humor, with its clean content, is intended primarily for adults.

The Sense of Humor is available wherever books are sold.

Reviews

Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, ""The Sense Of Humor: Let Humor Fast Track You to Healthier, Happier Living" is one of those life-changing reads that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf. Thoroughly 'reader friendly' in tone, content and commentary, "The Sense Of Humor" is very highly recommended for community library Self-Help/Self-Improvement collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "The Sense Of Humor" is also available in a Kindle edition ($9.95).

5.0 out of 5 stars
Understanding and Enjoying THE SENSE OF HUMOR by Max Elliot Anderson

By "Doc" Hilton on May 4, 2016
Format: Paperback
“If you can find humor in a situation, you can survive it.”

Those are the words of an unnamed comedian in the book, THE SENSE OF HUMOR, and the emphasis on the word “sense” is intentional. Think of humor as the “sixth sense” that everyone keeps talking about, but can never quite define. But understand, as well, that humor needs to be elevated out of the relative obscurity it enjoys in stand-up comedy clubs and late-night talk shows.

The therapeutic effects of humor have been analyzed, scrutinized, contemplated, collated, and annotated ad nauseam, but are usually hidden by a forest of mathematical, medical, psychological and statistical tables so dense that the subject dies from lack of oxygen.

Max Elliot Anderson has taken all of the data and put it in the language of the man on the street. Finally, whoever has an interest in the art and science of humor has a resource that will help them put a name on the positive effects of humor.

But we are living in the 21st Century, and the average consumer demands more! So . . . Anderson delivers.

The book is divided into two roughly equal parts. The first part is “How Humor Does What It Does.”

The second part of the book allows one to fully experience everything talked about in the first half, by providing a collection of humorous jokes, anecdotes, gaffs and giggles that will keep one in stitches – and out of the hospital – for the better portion of the remainder of one’s natural life.


5 stars for a book that delivers everything promised in the title!
