Laughter: A Prescription for Releasing Stress. Building Confidence, and Increasing Self-Worth
“Flightmares, Sky – High Humor” is filled with subtle wit, quotes and jokes attributed to well-known aviators, and, comedians. The pages are packed with “laugh a minute” twists, oddities, and idiosyncrasies; humor that is guaranteed to tickle the funny bone.
I especially enjoyed comments alluded to anonymous flight attendants, passengers, and pilots. I couldn’t help myself; I laughed, chuckled, and cracked up as I read the problems and solutions recorded by pilots and their mechanics.
The clever and imaginative cartoon illustrations created by Khairul Izzuddin add to the wit of an already hilarious collection, using well-chosen concepts related to air travel, customer service, and aeronautical procedures.
Bob recognized the physical benefits of laughter. There is healing in laughter. Doctors are prescribing “laughter” for relieving stress. Studies have established that laughing releases endorphins which stimulate feeling of caring and forgiveness, which create a positive state of the mind and “boost” optimism, self-confidence and feelings of self-worth.
Robert D. Reed is known for his love of fun by his family, his friends, and business associates. As you pick up “Flightmares, Sky High Humor,” be sure to allow yourself the extra benefit of laughter, out loud laughter that triggers the endorphins to do their magic.
Fun filled entertainment at its Best
