  Books can make you think, smile, and weep, but the best kind is the ones that can make you laugh. Sure, it's great to read the tear-jerkers, the thought-provokers, and the literary classics.   Types of humor and comedy vary from workplace to workplace, and they very much depend on the culture. In my experience (working in almost every work environment, from small startups to giant corporations) the less hierarchical the company is, the more willing people are to crack jokes and push a few boundaries.

Humour, Work and Organization explores the critical, subversive and ambivalent character of humour and comedy as it relates to organizations and organized work. It examines the various individual, organizational, social and cultural means through which humour is represented, deployed, developed, used and understood. Discover the best Humor in Best Sellers.
