A readable, funny and insightful book outlining how doctors, lecturers, managers can improve communication skills by strengthening empathy through improvisation exercises. Alda is a good writer and his intelligence as well as his modesty come through as he explains the scientific studies of empathy, how it is measured, enhanced and re-measured in lab settings. The book also describes people's feelings about how their personal and professional interactions became more effective after taking part in improvisation exercise sessions.
