The first comprehensive, scientific - and often humorous - look at one of our most common yet complex and puzzling behaviors, by the recognized expert in the field. Guffaws in a crowded bar, giggles that punctuate lovers' murmurs, a blaring TV laugh track - the sounds of laughter are a fundamental part of life's texture. Science has largely overlooked this basic component of our humanity, but in Laughter neurobiologist Robert Provine takes a long-anticipated and wide-ranging look at this intriguing and surprising topic.
