Research on humor is carried out in a number of areas in psychology, including the cognitive (What makes something funny?), developmental (when do we develop a sense of humor?), and social (how is humor used in social interactions?) Although there is enough interest in the area to have spawned several societies, the literature is dispersed in a number of primary journals, with little in the way of integration of the material into a book. Dr. Martin is one of the best known researchers in the area, and his research goes across subdisciplines in psychology to be of wide appeal.

This book is a love story, detective mystery, and great American novel. Joe Freedom is a private investigator who finds lost things. Sometimes they don’t want to be found, which makes it all the more interesting. And for the first time since the last time, he’s found love, or thinks he has, shrinks he has, you’ll see. The case: Professor Otis Grille’s daughter Alex is missing and family and friends are clueless as to her whereabouts. Joe and his therapist, Vana Fox, team up to profile Alex, search for her, and learn to love each other. They practice often. Why is Alexandra Grille hiding out at Valley View Rehab under a cloak of deniability and doctor/patient privilege? She paid cash. She told no one. Is she running away from someone? Prose, rap, and other poetic pursuits provide the backdrop for clues and blues and the occasional “Red herrings ball bearings Batman, how is a part-time PI supposed to find someone so intent on being lost?” Does love get in the way? How can it not? Vana’s hot. Can Joe find the professor’s daughter before something awful befalls her? Now that he’s found Vana, can Joe get anything done? Those are the questions. Get your answers.

This book is for all my fellow teachers who enjoy poetry and believe their students will become better writers if they keep practicing. Kids often just need something interesting and challenging to write about: that is how this book can help. Poetry, with its conciseness, emotion, and lack of punctuation, is a great way to begin each school year and ease the kids into other forms of writing. Poetry lends itself to success. Anyone can do i...
