No Joke! Humor researchers travel 91,000 miles for laughs, Humor Code book out today


As a strong promoter of “travel with a purpose,” I can’t wait to read this book about Joel Warner’s and Peter McGraw’s five-continent  experiment to see how comedy travels through cultures. After three years of work, The Humor Code: A Global Search for What Makes Things Funny hits bookstores today, April 1. I promise an actual review of the book when I get my hands on a copy, but for now, congratulations to Joel and Peter, and thank you for this free PDF sample of Chapter 1: “COLORADO,” courtesy of Simon & Schuster.
