Can you have your cake and eat it too? Probably not. Can you gain muscles without some experience of pain? I doubt it. Can you significantly and positively change your life while having fun doing it? Most definitely yes. Read this Laughing Guide and learn how you can enjoy every step of the way to lasting change. Be warned, though, that muscle pain (and gain) in your stomach due to excessive laughter may ensue as you read this book. Be warned, too, that for your personal health as well as the hygiene of those around you, you should not have cake in your mouth while reading this book. -- Tal Ben Shahar, Best Selling Author of Happier
We hear a lot about setting "SMART" goals to achieve desired change in our lives but not nearly enough about how to pursue them wisely-until now. The Laughing Guide to Change teaches that, on the path to meaningful change, identifying specific, measurable goals is just the beginning. Don't let the light-hearted title fool you: While the book filled with stories that made me chuckle and reminds us not to take ourselves so seriously, it also is packed with science-backed strategies that embrace the holistic framework needed to achieve our dreams. Through science and stories, Isaac and Ora Prilleltensky show us how our emotions, habits of thoughts, relationships, and environmental cues strongly influence our behavior and support or undermine our well-being. The book expertly weaves solid research with practical advice to help move us from wishing for a better life to finally achieving it. I've already begun using some of the book's strategies and recommend it to anyone trying to change their lives for the better (and who isn't?)! -- Anne M. Brafford, workplace thriving consultant, speaker, researcher and author of Positive Professionals: Creating High-Performing, Profitable Firms through the Science of Engagement
The Prilleltenskys have authored a highly engaging, down-to-earth, research-informed volume on how to enhance the quality of your life. If you follow their advice - and you should - you will also enhance the lives of those around you. And did I mention that The Laughing Guide to Change is funny? It is, often in laugh-out-loud fashion (though the Miami Chamber of Commerce might not agree). By the time I finished this book I very much wanted to meet Isaac and Ora in person; their story exemplifies the psychological resilience they write about. -- Michael Morris, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of New Haven
I laughed by myself, I laughed with myself, I laughed at myself - the Prilleltenskys gave me great insights and great laughs. This is how learning should be. I highly recommend this book, as a gift to yourself and those you love - and maybe even some people you don't like, because you might get to like them after they read this book and laugh more. -- Fathali M. Moghaddam, Author of "Mutual Radicalization: How groups and nations push each other to extremes"
