“The fire’s crackling and there’s
a seat on the couch here.
Cuddle up and let’s all get into it.
Let’s all get onto it.
And let’s all get a little bit
~ Neil Pasricha from The Book of Awesome
I love surprises! So when I got an email from Neil Pasricha asking if he could send me an advanced copy of his new book, The Book of Awesome, I had one thing to say: “Awesome!” It’s filled with reminders of the simple pleasures that make life NICE.
OK, who doesn’t love “the other side of the pillow” - you know, the cool side that you turn to when you’ve been lying there, playing dead. Suddenly, you can just sink into it and relax. Better than melatonin! Or the excitement when a new checkout lane opens up and the cashier invites you to be first… popping bubble wrap… or the triumph of peeling an orange all in one shot.
This book is filled with little doses of awesome that make us think about how to find something to be happy about… something to appreciate every day. The day I received this surprise gift was my little bit of awesome. Awesome that Neil found Wouldn’t It B Nice?… nice that he saw a connection in what we’re doing… nice that I have another companion in kindness… So, the only awesome thing I could think to do is pass it on to you.
Neil’s book will be available on April 15. Awesome for you. Awesome to pass on. In the meantime, enjoy a preview at Neil’s blog.
