Please forgive my rating my own book. This is my "baby" -- the book I may always be most proud of....

In this book, I did my best to show: 1) what humor is (ie., not telling jokes, but being playful); 2) why EVERYONE is naturally adept at this; 3) how this natural aptitude helps people to both teach and learn; and 4) ways to develop and use your natural sense of humor and play.

The most gratifying comment I've received from readers has been: "I meant just to scan a few pages, but ended up reading 3 chapters!" I wrote the book using the very techniques I was espousing to TO INSPIRE LEARNERS TO WANT TO LEARN MORE. The fact that my own learners -- ie., the book's readers -- were so inspired doubly confirmed my experiences in the classeoom and at the podium.

I'd love to hear back from anyone who uses the techniques in this book. ( )
