Here are some reactions from prominent professionals:
"What Was I Thinking?" is a phrase we've all used many times - but Jim Knaus' book, Why Are You Laughing? puts a new spin on it - and shows that Life doesn't always work that way; it's not always thinking that makes the difference; it's what we do - and how we do it - and whom we do it with - that counts. Jim's book will make you smile at all the silly pranks and things you wish you'd dreamed up yourself - or done!
--- Stephan R. Leimberg, JD, AEP
Just when we need it most, Jim Knaus has tapped his vast arsenal of experience to share pithy observations packed with wit and wisdom. His eye for the absurd and his storytelling prowess make for a spicy, mood-lifting read that reminds us all not to take life's fumbles and foibles too seriously. What else would you expect from a man who's chosen "Light My Fire" as the theme song for his eventual cremation?
But Jim's also an irrepressible teacher -- and a good one -- so underlying the lighthearted laughs are sage lessons every professional should keep in mind, through good times and bad.
--- Melissa Preddy, financial journalist & former personal finance editor for The Detroit News
It's amazing that Jim Knaus has been able to get away with all of this for so long. We're better off though, now that he has recorded all this lunacy for our enjoyment.
