Publisher's Summary

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

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, like: 

  • 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  

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 that make you feel like a kid looking at the world for the first time. Listen to it and you’ll remember all the things there are to feel good about.

Not the same...

I read You Are Awesome narrated by the author and really loved it. I enjoyed the back stories behind every story. I thought the Book of Awesome must be great. Not really...I couldn't get into it. If you have to pick one or the other select You Are Awesome.

Not my cup of tea

Most of my friends loved it - reminded me of the audio version of “1,000 things to be happy about”.....along with finishing every passage with the exclamation, “AWESOME !!” Couldn’t even get through the whole audio book...and I say gratitudes every day; I am not a curmudgeon or a misanthrope
