Yakov Smirnoff and me

Having read The Laughing Guide to Well-Being: Using Humor and Science to Become Happier and Healthier Yakov Smirnoff, the famous comedian, wrote the following:

“Isaac’s book is hilarious. I believe if you can get people to laugh that means you’re getting them to listen, and when they listen, they learn. This book accomplishes all three of these things.” Yakov Smirnoff.

I want to make it clear that Yakov was not pressured to do this, and that he did not do this under duress. Being from Miami, I know what you’re all thinking: I bribed Yakov to write an endorsement of my new book, but let me reassure you that Yakov does not take bribes and I don’t give bribes. 

I also know that you’re thinking I’m desperate to sell copies of my new book, but let me reassure you that I’m not desperate. I’m inconsolably desperate. 

If Yakov’s blurb and my pathetic plea do not cause you to click on the link above and order my book, I don’t know what will. But don’t complain when copies run out and everybody at the office is talking about my book and you don’t know what’s going on.
