    Thanks so much for the input! Improv is SUCH a great teacher of how to deal with life! It has really helped me become happier, more creative, and more comfortable being myself. I always thought someone should write a book on using improv rules for life. Last month I was reading Chris Brogan’s Trust Agents, and in it he talked about a book called “Improv Wisdom”. I ordered it, read it and, yup, it is THE book on applying improv rules to life. You might want to check it out.
