Product Details


“We’ve all heard the old saying, ‘Laughter is the best medicine.’ Well, as it turns out, our grandmothers were right; there is rigorous science that validates this timeless wisdom. In this eye-opening and utterly enjoyable book, Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas explain why regular doses of humor can nourish our minds, bodies, and souls. If you want to find out how you can trade in your stress, anxiety, and burnout for levity, laughter, and joy, read this now.”—Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

“Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas have written a remarkable book for a remarkable moment in history. I learned long ago that when weighed down by serious matters, one may best be taken seriously by seeking out a certain lightheartedness as an expression of humility, optimism, and confidence on the road to the serious business of nurturing trust and leading others.”—­Joel Peterson, Chairman of JetBlue Airways

“Eye-opening, hilarious, and absolutely original, Humor, Seriously will change the way you think on the job, about the world, and in your life.”—­Leslie Blodgett, founder and former CEO of Bare Escentuals

“Of all the known ways to ruin humor, the most common start with the words ‘research,’ ‘analyze,’ and ‘professor.’ The bad news is that this book features all of those words. Prominently. The good news is that against all odds, you’ll actually have fun reading it. It probably won’t turn you into Ali Wong, Dave Chappelle, or Hannah Gadsby, but it will give you a much deeper appreciation of how they think—and teach you some new ways to make people laugh.”—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, and host of the TED podcast

“Fresh, profound, and consistently entertaining. I know the words ‘evidence-based’ don’t immediately connote riotous laughter, but Aaker and Bagdonas bring some irresistibly compelling science to the art and application of humor. “—Kelly Leonard, executive vice president of The Second City
