Book Review – Humour, Seriously: Why Humour is a Secret Weapon in Business and Life, written by Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas

It is said that, Life is so much easier with a sense of humour. I received this book for an honest review from Gutenberg. 

Humour, Seriously is a very interesting book that explains in detail about how humour works, especially in our professional spaces along with personal lives. We think a workplace is a place where things are to be taken seriously and hence, the number of times we laugh is relatively lesser.

Believe it or not, I find people with a great sense of humour, very confident and easy to work with. I don’t know if all smart people are funny but I strongly feel that all funny people are smart. This book tells us how humour can be that powerful tool that helps us accomplish important and serious work. And the facts in the book are not baseless. They are derived from study, analysis and research by behavioral scientists, comedians and some successful business leaders.

Aekar and Bagdonas help us understand why humour is important and how we can use a good amount of it in our lives and at workplaces. The book is packed with humour, insights and some amazing tips about how to accomplish serious work with a dash of humour.

The book is out now and I suggest everyone read it. After all, humour is by far the most significant activity of the human brain. 

Thank you, Gutenberg for sending this lovely book over.
