Here is a recent review on Amazon:
The best book about laughter I've ever read
'As a medical doctor and laughter yoga facilitator I have read and been told lots about the benefits of laughter. Since I have been practicing laughing on daily basis for a while I felt that the scientific literature and methodologies to help you laughing did not fully explain or get the full experience of laughter. Joe Hoare, author of 'the Awakening Buddha within' really gets it. He covers the laughter experience in depth complementing the scientific facts available with the knowledge and wisdom that comes from the experience. This book is for everyone. If you are starting or have not started yet in any laughter practice, this book will gently guide you into it, you just need to follow the small easy steps suggested. If you are an experienced laughter practitioner this book will bring depth and authenticity to your own practice, by following the same small and easy steps. This is what it has brought me, the simplicity and depth of recognising your inner smile and where it is coming; and build your laughter practice from there. Thanks!'

'Loved the book, really different' (Matthew Manning)
'A Big Laugh' CD (£11.50 inc P&P)
Hear a sample (440kb) from A Big Laugh audio CD.
The sound of laughter is used as an anti-depressant by the Austrian psychiatrist, Dr Koutek, because laughter is primarily an auditory experience.
You can use this as a general tonic; for a mood lifting experience; for team connection; and many other ways you can think of.
