Amazon.com Review

Neil Pasricha is back with a great reminder of more free and easy little joys that make life sweet.

Excerpts from The Book of (Even More) Awesome
(Click on Thumbnails to Enlarge)

The first couple hours of the road trip: Full boxes of granola bars, fresh mix tapes, and the heady thrill of anticipation get your body ready for a nice long ride. Gas tank's full, washer fluid's topped up, and your tiny thimble bladder doesn't have a drop in it. We're flying now. AWESOME! Rubbing someone's newly shaved head: Feel the buzz and rub that fuzz. AWESOME!

Stomping dry crunchy leaves on the sidewalk: Baby buds pop out in the spring, healthy leaves fly high all summer, and then they crumble and tumble down to the sidewalk. Yes, the sun rose, the sun set, months went by, and the earth actually tilted on its axis before this moment could appear before you. Now enjoy the crispy crunch that comes when your sneakers smash a brittle little leaf into smithereens. AWESOME! Realizing you still remembered your childhood friend's phone number: Realizing you still remember old phone numbers gives a great smile-and-sunshine vibe. Lips curl, eyes twinkle, and memory reels start whirring on the rusty projector as you remember dialing those digits, day after day, day after, day after day. Making plans for the park, grumbling about teachers, whispering about cute classmates late at night, you just suddenly remember those times, those moments, and those old friends. AWESOME!

Review

Praise for THE BOOK OF AWESOME

"Neil Pasricha is the guru of small joys." --The Toronto Star

"Strangely heartwarming... perfect for rainy days." -- The New Yorker

"Pasricha emerges a committed but inviting optimist, combating life's unending stream of bad news by identifying opportunities to share a universal high-five with humanity." --Publisher's Weekly

"It's nice to remind yourself of life's sweeter side and the pleasures from the small things -- like peeling the thin plastic film off new electronics or sneaking snacks into the cinemas. Life really is awesome after all." --The Guardian

"Sunny without being saccharine, it's a countdown of life's little joys that reads like a snappy Jerry Seinfeld monologue by way of Maria Von Trapp." --The Vancouver Sun

"Laugh-out-loud funny tinged with just enough sarcastic nostalgia." --WIRED --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dear Amazon.com customer,

I know we don't know each other very well, and you're thinking: "Who does this guy think he is to tell me what books to buy?". And I really don't mean to be presumptuous, but I'd like to kick-off our relationship by doing you a tremendous favor and recommending to you a book you will not forget - The Book of (Even More) AWESOME.

You see, I've been following along with the AWESOME movement for some time now, when I first discovered the award winning blog over at 1000awesomethings.com. This is where Neil Pasricha kicked things off, posting an awesome thing every weekday. It wasn't long before I found myself checking in every day to have a big smile spread across my face while I read about the pleasures of sleeping in new bed sheets, getting a prime seat at the movie theatre or hitting a bunch of green lights in a row when you're late for work. I must not have been the only one enjoying reading about life's little pleasures because before long, the site was winning awards, increasing in popularity and releasing a book - the best-selling "The Book of AWESOME" - that is filled with more of Neil's beautiful writing, keen eye for life's happy little moments and tremendous sense of humor.

So, you can imagine the smile I had on my face when I got home from work today to my pre-ordered copy of this new book - another fantastic collection of moments in life guaranteed to make you smile.

Now that we're starting to get to know each other better, let me share an embarrassing fact with you.. I've been stuck at this point in the review for the last 20 minutes.

The Book of (Even More) Awesome, the follow-up book to Neil Pasricha's original literary masterpiece that has rightfully claimed a spot on bestseller lists for 50+ weeks (The Book of Awesome), is certainly the must-have volume two for anyone who owns the first book. After winning an online contest and receiving a galley copy of The Book of (Even More) Awesome in the mail about a month ago, I have been thinking of what I would say in this review in order to do the book justice.

Pasricha jumps right in with an eloquent and eye-opening introduction that lightly touches on his own personal and harrowing life experiences: loneliness, a broken marriage, and a close friend who fell victim to suicide. The message is clear without being preachy or overly-optimistic: when faced with the bad news, pain, and heartbreak that many of us experience on a daily basis, we have the choice to observe and enjoy small moments in life, allowing them to improve our frames of mind - even if only for a bit, or we have the choice to continue to "swirl in gloomy darkness forever".

And that's just the introduction.

The remaining pages are not filled with any kind of typical self-help advice, philosophical reflections, or mundane clichés about how we can turn our lives around and begin to see the glass half full. Rather, readers are treated to well-written and hilarious anecdotal observations and personal stories that illustrate tiny moments of joy that each of us has no doubt experienced.

As I read my awesomely-acquired advance copy, there was a constant recurring thought: "Yes! Exactly!

A few weeks ago I read Mr. Pasricha's "The Happiness Equation" The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything and loved it! Learning about his other books ("The Book of Awesome" and "The Book of (Even More) Awesome") I wanted more.

When I ordered "The Book of (Even More) Awesome" I was not sure what I would be reading and it was different from many books that I have read. What I really liked about it was the HUGE reminder that there are so many elements of life that we too often overlook and rarely remember. In programs I deliver I often emphasize the importance of gratitude and I keep a monthly gratitude list. While reading during a recent business trip I smiled as I started to reflect on the many AWESOME things that happen to me each day. And, I started writing these down in the back "The Book of (Even More) Awesome." Bad stuff does happen and how many times each day do truly awesome little things happen. Focusing on these can have a major and positive impact on our mood, outlook, etc.

During this trip alone I wrote down some awesome events: thinking my luggage had been lost after waiting a long time only to see it roll onto the luggage carousel, returning home luggage first bag out, my cat running down the stairs to welcome me home, and more! (And, wrote down even more not related to this trip.)

If readers want a quick read that serves as a reminder of all the awesome events, experiences, and so much more that happen I strongly recommend this book.
