Editorial Reviews

Review

“Funnily enough, this book is hilariously useful. Think of it as a practical playbook that helps you reconsider the way you do things and results in heightened levels of happiness. Every leader should read this book, work with the tools provided, and get serious about making people smile."
Phil M. Jones, Sales Coach and best-selling author, Exactly What to Say

“If Brian Regan and Warren Buffet had a baby... and that baby could write a book... it would be this book! Drew’s Humor That Works gives real-world examples of how humor increases effectiveness and job satisfaction and sets the stage for more meaningful human interactions that will bring benefits to the workplace and beyond. As Drew writes, ‘To be more human at work, use more humor at work.’”
Tim McGilloway, Global Solution Manager, Procter & Gamble

“Pay attention to the strategies Drew shares in this fantastic book—filled with ideas on how to help you incorporate humor as a daily habit in your personal and professional life. His ideas will drive productivity, credibility, and connectivity. A must-read for every leader and a great gift for every team member!”
Neen James, Attention Expert and author, Attention Pays

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a humor book, a business book (that has humor...and heart)
By Raman on April 1, 2019
Before reading this book, I'd seen Andrew speak at a # of companies I've worked - from multi-million dollar enterprises to fast-growing startups). His new book is the perfect encapsulation of his life's work, approach, and philosophy - how to be happier, and more productive at the place we spend 1/3 of our lives.

If you've met Andrew, heard of him, or seen him speak, this book is for you. If not, this book is great too, probably better bc you won't have his voice in your head as you read it (unless you spring for the audio book).

=
"You have to be good at what you do, but you also have to be good at how you do it."

Andrew's work - and this latest book book, using humor, shows you just that. Whether you're a founder, VP, newhire, or just working on something, this book will entertain and inform you to get things done in a better way. The ideas hit home as a way to be more productive, less stressed, and happier. This is a business book, with humor.

Also, SO many nerd references. I lost count.
