On New Year's Eve, journalist and former Parade editor-in-chief Janice Kaplan makes a promise to be grateful and look on the bright side of whatever happens. She realizes that how she feels over the next months will have less to do with the events that occur than her own attitude and perspective. Getting advice at every turn from psychologists, academics, doctors, and philosophers, she brings listeners on a smart and witty journey to discover the value of appreciating what you have.

An unfortunately superficial treatment of a profound topic. Her talk of her vacation home, trips to Europe, and large bank accounts made it unrelatable. I would have liked a little more grit and acknowledgement that it isn't always so easy to look on the bright side.
