Introduction to structuring humor
I liked "Instant Humor" because I'm pretty shy and I want to learn ways to break the ice! This book helped me learn how to formulate jokes in an effective, natural way. Making people laugh helps them relax and I think this will help me in my teaching.
There aren't any characters in this story but the book is written in a way that's easy to follow. Very user friendly.

Instant Humor helped me a ton. After all, people like funny people, and like being around people who are fun. Why not work on becoming that fun person yourself? I did, with the help of Instant Humor, and it worked extremely well. The first time I spoke to my now boyfriend, I opened with a joke after getting confidence and humor tips from Instant Humor, and it worked. I can’t recommend Instant Humor enough.
