Impro is a book about improvisational comedy, in a similar way that The Inner Game of Tennis is about tennis. That is to say, it is indeed about improv, but it's really about life, how identity works, the human mind, status, relationships, and story. It's not a comfortable book — it flirts with Jungian shadow work, and can feel weird at times. However, it's the sort of book that I keep thinking about, and has most definitely influenced how I operate in the world.
