Puns are often derided as the lowest form of wit and groaned at as the main staple of 'dad' jokes the world over. But puns do matter. Pollack skillfully weaves together historical facts and stories, the science of the brain, pop culture, literature, anthropology and humour to create an authoritative yet playful exploration of puns.
