The Courage to Laugh: Humor, Hope, and Healing in the Face of Death and Dying by Allen Klein

Life, said George Bernard Shaw, does not cease to be funny when someone dies, any more than it ceases to be serious when someone laughs. With heartening and amusing examples from a world in which many think there is no laughter, Allen Klein augments the truth of Shaws insightfulness. Illustrating the inherent importance of the ability to laugh, Klein gives readers the power to face the end of life with dignity and compassion.Based on the authors years of giving speeches and leading workshops for patients and their caregivers and families, The Courage to Laugh will be the first book to:* show how patients use humor to cope when life is threatened; * offer hope and encouragement to readers dealing with loss; * give readers permission to laugh when they feel like crying; * explain how popular culture can ease death-related fears; and * provide uplifting quotes and jokes.With poignant wisdom from children, parents, doctors, and nurses, combined with the spirited writing of the author, The Courage to Laugh is a lifesaving tool for everyone experiencing a serious illness and for the people who care for them.
