RN loves this book for teens..

I love this book…teaching teens about humor. I think alot of teens these days should learn to laugh at themselves, instead of always looking at themselves. THIS BOOK IS A HEALTHY DOSE OF HUMOR..and discusses all the benefits ..I am sending one to my neice and her whole high school, for that matter. LOL…Great job, Best and Jackal…You made me want to relive high school. I could of used these humor tips for a healthier attitude, less bullying, and a prom date. LOL…
