A connoisseur of comedy, Robin Ince has spent decades mining our eccentricities to create gags. And for years on The Infinite Monkey Cage he has sought to understand the world around us. In this book, he unites these pursuits to examine the human condition through the prism of humour. Why do we make the choices we do in life? Where do anxiety and imagination come from? Why are we like we are? Do our parents f*&k us up? Informed by insights from his own life and interviews with A-list comedians, neuroscientists, psychologists and doctors, this is a hilarious, and often moving, primer to the mind.
