This review is from: The Book of (Holiday) Awesome: When the Christmas Lights All Work, Successfully Regifting a Present, Drinking with Grandma (Hardcover)
Hello again - Amazon.com Customer,

You may remember me from such reviews as The Book of Even More Awesome. Well, having been following Neil Pasricha's awesome movement for some time now, you can imagine how excited I was when I heard that he had a third book coming out - The Book of (Holiday) AWESOME!

Obviously, having got hooked on the feel-good nature of Neil's books in the past (and having set a dangerous precedent of using these books as my "go to gifts" for friends), I knew that I had to pre-order a bunch of copies as soon as it was released. Thanks to the wonders of Amazon's release date delivery, I had a chance to come home from work today to a box of Holiday Awesome - and I'm glad to report that, just like Santa Claus, this book totally delivers!

The book is filled with the wonderful little moments in life that these books are so good at reminding us to celebrate and not take for granted. And they're made just that much sweeter by being focused on some of the most special times of the year. From the wonder you experienced as a childhood of staring into a fire on a cold winter's night, to fake wrapping a present to fool that special someone, to the memories that rush back when you unpack all of your favorite ornaments from years past. Flipping through the entries in this book is like a concentrated rush of holiday cheer, reminding you of all the special moments that this time of year brings with it (that have nothing to do with whether or not you've got a Wii under the christmas tree or not).

Plus, the book isn't just relegated to the cold snowy months. While the first half of the book has the winter holidays as the focus, as the book progresses it has funny little nuggets about the other holidays of the year as well, extending the AWESOME across the calendar.

You definitely won't go wrong in picking yourself up a copy of this book - leave it out on your coffee table (or behind your toilet!) when you're hosting your holiday parties this year. Your guests will surely flip through it and want to get a copy of your own. And be sure to pick up a few extra copies as well, for stocking stuffers or as a great little present to say thanks to that helpful coworker, funny teacher, or prompt postal service worker. It's sure to bring a smile to anyone's face!

Good chatting with you again, Amazon.com friend! Come back here and tell us what you thought after you gave this book a try - I know you'll love it!

Be Awesome,
Freddo
