As a Registered Nurse who has dealt with a stressful career for 43 years, I found this book to be a wealth of information and practical solutions. Ms. Nason provides an insightful history of humor and its relationship to our professional and personal lives. I particularly enjoyed Chapter 8 which is entitled “Brain Aerobics”……where practical solutions are presented on stimulating one’s brain….which I am hopeful will keep my brain active and alert as I focus on life as a senior citizen. One plus for professionals is the post-test provided….for which continuing education credits are granted. While this book is not a large one in size, it more than makes up for it in richness of content…..should be in every nurse’s library!
