A Ph.D. In Happiness From The Great Comedians Paperback – August 11, 2011
by Tommy Moore (Author)

On April 2nd, 1986, comedian Tommy Moore was robbed, beaten, bound, gagged, locked in a room and left for dead. Though he survived, he was told he might never stand on stage again. In less than a week, in head-to-toe bandages and casts, he did his next show. This is the story of how advice and encouragement from the greatest comedians in America brought about his physical and emotional healing. Through jokes, anecdotes, and backstage stories, read how Jay Leno, Bob Hope, Bill Cosby, Joan Rivers, Robin Williams, Milton Berle, Johnny Carson, Rosie O’Donnell, Steve Allen, Soupy Sales, Henny Youngman, Billy Crystal, Don Rickles, Shecky Greene, Steve Harvey and dozens more taught him lessons about Faith, Finding Yourself, Worry, Fear, Hate, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Hope, Love, Joy, Patience, Cooperation, Stress, Money, Spirituality, and The Meaning of Life. Read how “show-biz lessons” translate easily into “real life lessons”, and how the happiness that comedians work so hard to produce on stage can result in happiness off stage. More than 50 Icons of Comedy offer terrific lessons in happiness to performers and non-performers alike.

Here he shares the life-changing lessons he learned from each of them. He’s brought some of these lessons to seminars at corporations like AT&T, The SUN Company, DuPont, American Express, and SONY, to list a few, and taught them at Philadelphia’s Temple University.
