"Provides practical advice as to the fundamental importance of humor and laughter." --Steve Allen Science has proved, although we knew it all along, that humor is our best medicine. It reduces stress, promotes physical healing, is essential for mental health and can add years to one's life. But how do we learn to lighten up and take the first step toward finding the humorous side to our troubles when what we really feel like doing is crying? Allen Klein, who has successfully taught thousands to find the humor and consolations in life's tribulations, shows us how. Brimming with pointed, humorous anecdotes and learn-to-laugh techniques, The Healing Power of Humor combines the wisdom of the world's great spiritual teachers with the insights of famed humorists, comedians, and others to help you turn life's negatives into positives. It is the ideal book for anyone going through troubled times--whether it's the loss of a wallet, the loss of a job, a spat with one's spouse, or a stay in the hospital.
