    One thought on “Mizahın Şifresi”

    1. Thanks to GoodReads First Reads for a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.The Humor Code is the journalistic account of a professor and a journalist traipsing about the world in search of what makes things funny. Their basic questions aim to identify the rules that make people, jokes, performances, situations, and cartoons funny. They also explore the capacity of humans to laugh and the conditions that allow for such a reaction. Joel Warner, the journalist part of the duo, is [...]

    2. Occasionally, while mired in the middle of some writing some turgid paper on the economic ramifications Treaty of Maastricht or an equally-engaging area of the dismal science I would get distracted and get creative with my queries in my school's academic journal database. I would look for strange articles about football (turns out there are quite a lot) in hopes of avoiding my mind from completely going numb. I quickly reached the conclusion was that despite the best efforts of econ professors e [...]

    3. This book was a disappointment. The premise was quite intriguing in that that these two gentlemen would travel to different cultures in search of what made people laugh, and if there was a common element that held true through these cultures. The two, a professor of marketing and psychology and a journalist, propose that that common element is one of "benign violation." This is where there is something presented that is sensed to be unsettling, wrong or threatening, but then is found to be all r [...]

    4. Well, that certainly turned out better than expected. What starts out as sounding like a bad joke, a college professor and a journalist wanting to find out what makes things funny, ends up being a truly interesting book. It is part science, part road-trip humor, and one-hundred percent heart.After some initial research, the comedy researching authors set out to test the Benign Violation Theory, which crosses inappropriate humor without going over the socially-acceptable line. You can see this in [...]

    5. Many of my friends in the comedy scene have wondered why people who are self-proclaimed to be not all that funny would spend this much time, energy and insight into finding out what is humorous. The result is this book - the perfect example of "those who can't do, teach". And being taught is just as rewarding as doing in this instance. Pete and Joel do a great job of taking you to places and putting real life examples in front of you, while presenting many other studies and cases to back up thei [...]

    6. This is a remarkably engaging, and of course humorous treatise on the universal and cultural aspects of humor. The authors have traveled to several continents in search of the answer to the question "What makes us laugh?" Their travels include New York, L.A Japan, Scandanavia, Tanzania, Peru, and Montreal. Venues include everything from professional comedy clubs to emergency intervention in flood-ravaged Peru. The latter chapter is most poignant, with 100+ clowns, some from Patch Adams' Gesundhe [...]

    7. This rating/review is based on an ARC I got from netgalley.This book was definitely interesting, but like a lot of “fun” non-fiction I think it got too caught up in a hypothesis. I find my favorite sciency non-fiction books are Mary Roach’s. She doesn’t try to prove a point, she just follows her interest. Plus she is actually funny. There were a lot of really interesting tangents, but they weren’t able to flesh them out because they were working towards a narrative. Basically since Jon [...]

    8. Very few books are able to both teach me something and be interesting and enjoyable to read. But rarely I read a book that not only does so, but also leaves its mark on me. “The humor code” was one of those books.After reading “The humor code”, I can tell the reason behind my smiles and my laughter. A little part of my brain looks for the benign and the violation part of everything that I find funny. And what amazes me is that the theory this book introduces never fails. The book is very [...]

    9. It doesn't pull any punches or get any laughs and has little in the way of great revelations about humor but it is fun to read and not very long so you might as well read it.

    10. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book :) Fascinating, scientific, and yes, witty! One section went on a bit long, but it is an interesting read about what makes the world laugh.

    11. The only thing worse than not funny is boring. This book was a rarity for me was a book I chose not to finish.

    12. This review might be a tad rambling but so is the book so that is fair. I am very split in my mind about this book 2 stars or 3? Why doesn't GR allow 2.5 stars dammit! Okay I ended up giving it three because while the end result didn't match my expectations or what the authors set out to do it was a worthy attempt and their hearts were in the right place. Pros: I like the main author (not sure why Peter McGraw is listed as first author here, the book is written in first person narrative from Joe [...]

    13. A bit unfocused, and not as entirely scientific as I had hoped, but it's an entertaining read with some great bits of analysis concerning comedy, humor, and laughter.

    14. Eh.I read this book, I believe, on the recommendation of Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary and Writing Excuses. No blame to him for his review; I can see why he likes it. It was an easy read, and entertaining enough, and the core idea is sort of interesting but ultimately disappointing.The core idea is the "benign violation theory" of humor: things which are funny are at the intersection of things that are benign, and those that are violations of uh something? Expectations, mores, safety, I dun [...]

    15. Peter McGraw and Joel Warner decided to study what makes something funny. In Pete's words:“Humor can be dissected, as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process.”So there wasn't any laughter while listening to this audiobook, and often times it was slow going. However, humor has fascinated me because I love things that are funny, but most of what gets termed "humor" is just stupid to me.I completely agree with what Joel said:“Most experts today subscribe to some variations of the incong [...]

    16. A mildly entertaining tour through the humor business including the academic theories that try to dissect comedy to see what really makes it work. The twist on the theory of humor as researched by the academic co author Pete McGraw amounts to successful comedy relying on the idea of a benign violation of norms. Hmmm.I wasn't sold on this and the theory's strength isn't seriously tested but rather brought up very now and then somewhat incidentally to measure up against all the unusual comedic sit [...]

    17. Hi so I've read a lot of other comedy books and they felt kind of biased one way or another to stand up. They talked about all the trials and tribulations of doing stand up. I absolutely LOVED this book because the two men (who are not professional comedians by the way) went to five continents and had a very objective point of view about what makes things funny. I would give this book 6 or 7 stars out of 5 if I could because I just thought it was so well researched and offered some very good poi [...]

    18. After reading the description, I was concerned that this would be a buddy-travel book full of shenanigans and fart jokes, but it's not. This is a rigorous examination of humor from political, cultural, psychological and entertainment/art perspectives -- as told through a travel/journey of discovery narrative, so the "science" doesn't get overwhelmingly wonky. And when there are fart jokes and antics, it's entertaining and appropriate. A pleasurable, easy read that leaves you well-informed about [...]

    19. This book provides some interesting insight into what makes things funny. I like how the author describes their travels across the world trying to understand how different cultures impact humor. Also liked how they did a lot of comparative analysis of existing theories around humor and how they tried to test their own theory in real world situations. The authors clearly did a lot of groundwork and while the findings aren't really groundbreaking or compelling, they make for an interesting read. T [...]

    20. يتحدث الكتاب عن نظريات الكوميديا ويمزج بين النظريات العلمية في الكوميديا واضحاك الاخرين وبين التطبيقات العملية. من خلال رحلة قام بها حول العالم لدراسة تلك النظريات وتطبيقاتها على الواقع

    21. Those who write about humor theory -- especially amateurs and students -- like to explain the difference between the humor response or amusement, and the more general, bodily act of laughter. That difference is obvious and too often emphasized, while it would be more useful to acknowledge the difference between humor and play. Play, or horseplay, among humans, is funny because it contains humor, but it probably arouses laughter in a composite or compound sense. The part of horseplay that derives [...]

    22. ensuingchapters/2014/03/31The Humor Genome ProjectA journalist and a scientist walk into a bar… travel the world, return to the lab and come out with what is likely the best book you’ll read all yearby Vince DarcangeloIn my graduate form and technique class, our instructor, Steven Schwartz, devoted a three-hour class period to humor. I was shocked to learn that there was a dearth of comic literature to study.Why had so few serious writers ventured down that rabbit hole?“Comedy is not kind, [...]

    23. This is an interesting nonfiction piece! It's 2 dudes with PhD's who traveled the world dissecting what makes people laugh in different cultures. It's the science behind humor. I had to read it in sections as some times it can be a bit much, but it is extremely interesting to say the least. Here's some facts for me to spew off from it to give ya a breeze through:1. The issue of The Onion titled Hijackers Surprised to Find Themselves in Hell, written on 9/11, is still to this day the most-comment [...]

    24. This is a painless introduction to the field of “Humor Studies”. The authors, a professor of behavior psychology and a local journalist, embark on a multi-country tour exploring different aspects of comedy, the causes of laughter, and the nature of humor. They give you a sense of the variety of academic theories from Plato and Aristotle, Freud, Arthur Koester, to recent social scientific theories about what makes things funny, how jokes get made, and why we (and apes) laugh. McGraw is the di [...]

    25. As someone who values humor in my daily life, this book was a fun read. However, if you are looking for an in-depth scientific analysis of humor/comedy around the world, this may not be what you are looking for (though a few recommendations of the sort are made throughout the book). This story is more of a comedic adventure around the world in pursuit of what makes things funny and to reinforce Pete's benign violation theory.I feel it is also necessary to note that I have Pete as a professor at [...]

    26. bu kitabı listemden çıkarıyorum. başladığım bir kitabı bitirmemem çok nadirdir. ama çok sıkıldım. okumak istediğim o kadar çok kitap varken buna devam etmek zaman kaybı gibi geliyor. duvarımda görmekten de sıkıldım artıkr bilim adamı ve bir gazeteci "mizah nedir?" insanlar neye güler diye araştırmaya başlıyorlar. önce ABD sonra da dünyanın çeşitli yerlerine gidip komedi ortamlarını inceliyorlar, hatta bizzat kendileri de komedi yapmaya çalışıyor. çok sarm [...]

    27. Having been raised in an immigrant family, in an immigrant community with an American dad ad his family, I straddle the humor world of two cultures. I don't always understand the humor of either culture. But understand enough to know why it's funny in one culture and not the other! Humor is very odd. I was drawn to this book to try and understand humor better as it relates to various cultures around the world. It was worth a read and recommend it. It explains quite a bit actually, and I enjoyed [...]

    28. It's a light, breezy read, but I don't feel like there was really any new information here, or anything that was counterintuitive. Comedy varies across cultures? Got it. Comedy is a reaction to hardship? Yup, knew that. People find racier stuff funny when they're drunk? Not really news.I expected more from a book co-authored by an academic who allegedly studies humor. If you're really looking for a book that tries to look at humor analytically, I recommend Bob Mankoff's "How About Never".

    29. Though it's a required read for one of my classes (Honors Humor Studies [yes, it's a real class]) this semester, I am thoroughly enjoying it! I like how I am able to make real life connections to a lot of themes discussed in the book and all the different ways the authors are trying to understand humor: biological, psychological, sociological, etc. It's an interesting text, whether you're a comedy-buff or a scholar.
