The Book of Awesome: Snow Days, Bakery Air, Finding Money in Your Pocket, and Other Simple, Brilliant Things

by Neil Pasricha

Think of a little thing in life that is awesome. It is probably listed in this book. OK, so he mentions snow days as being awesome; they can be if you are a kid or you rent your home. If that's the case, someone else will do the shoveling to get you on your way to sled or ski.

I'm sure this book was probably written by listening to all the things people say are awesome in daily conversation. In fact, many "awesome" things inspire very little awe in us. However, we simply enjoy them for what they are. This book reminds us that in every day we have the chance to find at least one thing enjoyable. Maybe it's a campfire, or absolute silence (yeah, good luck with that one - even the refrigerator makes noise.) If you need a little pick-me-up, this book might be awesome enough to get you back on the road to optimism.
