This book is a constant reminder - every day of the importance of gratitude. The payoff is bringing more happiness and prosperity into your life. Sounds like an amazing reward! I'm grateful that this book is there for me today.
One of the assignments that I give such people is to read what others have to say about thankfulness and gratitude. Unfortunately, there are only few books that are available and therefore this book has come to readers at the right time.
This book gathers 365 brief articles about gratitude, written by a large number of writers and it covers a large number of situations. I enjoyed reading the brief essays and highly recommend this book.
Read this book:
** If you suffer from a nagging sense of anxiety
** If you wish to see the positive side of life
** If you wish to saturate your life with positive thoughts
All of the above things will help anyone and everyone. What is more, it takes only a minute to read each day's thoughts and therefore even the busiest person will be helped by this excellent compilation. I hope the writer will come up with many similar volumes -- perhaps category-specific volumes, such as one for teachers, another for homemakers, students, pastors, and even counselors. After all even counselors are human!
*** Highly recommended for those who wish to overcome their negative thoughts
*** Highly recommended for those who wish to overcome pessimism
*** Highly recommended for those who wish to develop a positive outlook to life
*** Highly recommended to counselors as a tool to help their clients
People from all walks of life writing essays on what they are grateful for is great, however after reading through just a few from January I was disappointed.
Why? Random gratitude essays thrown together with no clear theme other than the general topic, made it tough to want to continue reading.
In January, an essay on gratitude for indoor toilets, for example. The essay wasn't really funny, so I wasn't sure how to take it. It preceded an essay about a guy who lost his wife to illness and was grieving her loss, but grateful for the experience. The two didn't work well side by side. The toilet essay took away from the power of the other. I'm sure the intent was to include both in the book, but it could have been done in a better way.
It seems that many of the entries I read were not well thoughtout in terms of placement throughout the book. The book lacks an easy to read flow, and this to me, is its greatest flaw.
A suggestion for a fix for future editions would be the use sub-themes. Each month of the year the editors could choose a topic like Family, Friends, Co-Workers, Nature, etc..., and group essays based upon the monthly theme.
Is it all bad? No. There are good, heartfelt essays in the book, they are just lost amid poor organization resulting in a lack of flow to the book.
Is it for me? No. I appreciate gratitude in its many forms, and I appreciate the Gratitude Book Project for helping worthy causes. That being said, this book just wasn't my cup of tea and not what I expected.
Would I recommend it to others? Well, yes and no. I got it for free.Read more ›
