Based on the award-winning blog 1000 Awesome Things, The Book of (Even More) Awesome is the sequel to Pasricha's The Book of Awesome. It is filled with more of the little things and unexpected wins that unexpectedly brighten your day. Finally getting that tiny piece of popcorn out of your teeth, accidentally doing something really good in sports, when a baby falls asleep on you, the moment on holiday when you forget what day of the week it is, waking up to the smell of sizzling bacon. While polar ice caps melt, buzz saws chop down forests, wars go on and on, here's a special, secret place where we can turn off that bright light, snuggle up and get comfy to chat about the sweetest parts of life. Filled with touching, astute and funny observations, each entry ends with the big, booming feeling you'll get when you read through them: AWESOME!
About the Author
Neil Pasricha is the author of the blog 1000 Awesome Things, which inspired The Book of Awesome. It has received more than 6 million hits in its first year and won two 2009 Webby Awards in the prestigious Best Blog category. Pasricha's writing has appeared in Cosmopolitan and New York magazines and on Yahoo!
Pasricha was living in a "dusty suburb" and working an office job as the magic of his marriage sadly faded. So on June 20, 2008, he went online to recall bright moments: "I wanted to try to focus on the positive by writing about one awesome thing every night after I came home from work." His countdown of simple joys eventually resulted in 23 million hits at his award-winning site (1000awesomethings.com) and a bestseller, The Book of Awesome. Scheduled for publication the same week he completes all 1,000, this entertaining follow-up collection offers more reflections on life's little pleasures, such as "Getting the keys to your first apartment" or "Making it halfway." Not surprisingly, many of these short essays are food-related, such as "Eating cookies like Cookie Monster." With "The perfect egg crack" and "Kicking those clumps of frozen slush off the back of your car's mud flaps," Pasricha finds fun in frustrations, going from grit to wit. All 224 optimistic observations are neatly packaged in a great book design by Amanda Dewey. (Apr. 28) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
