Praise

"A compelling exegesis on what puns are and why they matter." — The Los Angeles Times

"A fun, cogent argument in favor of a dubious, often-damned art." — Kirkus Reviews

"He tells us, with a clarity unusual for the subject, how the mind works…" — P.J. O’Rourke, The New York Times Book Review

"The best books on language are the ones that encourage us to reexamine what we think we know, and "The Pun Also Rises" does exactly that." — Boston Globe

"Whether you are practicing punster, interested in language or just hungry to learn something on the beach this summer as you lie on the sand-which-is there (see what happens when you talk to this guy?), Pollack’s book is fun and informative." — Detroit Free Press
