About this item

Based on the award-winning 10-million-plus-hit blog 1000awesomethings. com, The Book of Awesome is a high five for humanity and a big celebration of life's little moments:

Popping Bubble Wrap

Wearing underwear just out of the dryer

Fixing electronics by smacking them

Getting called up to the dinner buffet first at a wedding

Watching The Price Is Right when you're home sick

Hitting a bunch of green lights in a row

Waking up and realizing it's Saturday

Sometimes it's easy to forget the things that make us smile. With a 24/7 news cycle reporting that the polar ice caps are melting, hurricanes are swirling in the seas, wars are heating up around the world, and the job market is in a deep freeze, it's tempting to feel that the world is falling apart. But awesome things are all around us-sometimes we just need someone to point them out.

The Book of Awesome reminds us that the best things in life are free (yes, your grandma was right). With laugh-out-loud observations from award- winning comedy writer Neil Pasricha, The Book of Awesome is filled with smile-inducing moments on every page that make you feel like a kid looking at the world for the first time. Read it and you'll remember all the things there are to feel good about.

The Book of Awesome reminds us of all the little things that we often overlook but that make us smile. With touching, warm, and funny observations, each entry ends with the big booming feeling you'll get when you read through them: AWESOME!
