    From The Humorous Times (Summer 2014): Among the books that introduce the philosophy of humor to newcomers, The Philosophy of Humour, by comic novelist and teacher of creative writing Paul McDonald, stands out for its accessibility as well as for practice elements to keep readers mentally busy. The slim introduction covers all the topics that readers unfamiliar with the philosophy of humor need to know to navigate the field successfully: he addresses the evolutionary beginnings and functions of amusement and humor and canvasses traditional theories ranging from ancient Greek accounts of humor to Superiority Theory, Incongruity Theory and Relief Theory. The biggest advantage of The Philosophy of Humour over its peers is that it does not simply present positions but stimulates readers to think philosophically and creatively about them. Steffen Steinert, in The Humorous Times (Summer 2014)
