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.

Truly Awesome!

My best friend and I listened to this on a long road trip this summer. While I count myself a fantastic DJ not even I can make 24 hours in the car all that exciting so I downloaded this little book and hoped for the best. I was not disappointed! The narration is lively and fun and I like that there are a few people reading the book. The awesome things described are done so in such a way that you end up feeling nostalgic by the end of it even if you had not previously shared in the experience of a certain chapter. The content leaves you appreciating the little things in life and I highly recommend it! It's a great book that brought a little sunshine to a long trip and is one that I'll definitely listen to again!

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
