    all its coomplexity

    The following sentences are about 'laughter" and I am not sure what it means. can you please explain??( especially the red parts)

    His well written, often amusing and always fascinating book presents laughter in all its complexity and with all its contraditions. He does not try to sell us a one-issue explanation of laughter.

    The humor used in his books is little complex to understand, i.e., you need to think logically and derive a conclusion which may even sound absurd. And the humor presented in his books include wide ranging work on humor genres, say, few may be related to women or marriage or may be even on some science theory..

    hope i interpreted it correctly.. if any contradictions please feel free.. let's have a discussion.

    Laughter is used in many different ways by different cultures. Humor, embarassment, confusion, derision, etc. a "one-issue" explanation would only cover one reason why people might laugh.
