Based on the 10-million-plus-hit blog 1000awesomethings.com, The Book of Awesome is a high five for humanity and a big celebration of life’s little moments:
Eating the extra fries at the bottom of the bag.
Peeling that thin plastic film off new electronics.
Seeing a cop on the side of the road and realising you’re already going the speed limit anyway.
Celebrating your pet’s birthday even though they have no idea what’s going on.
The smell of books.
When you’ve had a bad day, simply pick up this book, read a page at random, and repeat until you feel better. The Book of Awesome is like some kind of medication that’s guaranteed to induce happiness.
I’ll leave you with one more: The moment at a restaurant after you see your food coming from the kitchen but before it lands on your table: Somebody shushes, conversation hushes, and all eyes flicker with delight as you watch your sizzling, glistening meals cruise out of the kitchen and slowly descend in front of you. AWESOME!!!
Plus, I just learned that there are two more Books of Awesome. They will surely be finding a home on my bookshelf very soon.
Neil Pasricha, YOU are awesome.
