Product Description

From Amazon

Neil Pasricha is back with a great reminder of more free and easy little joys that make life sweet.

Excerpts from The Book of (Even More) Awesome
(Click on Thumbnails to Enlarge)

The first couple hours of the road trip: Full boxes of granola bars, fresh mix tapes, and the heady thrill of anticipation get your body ready for a nice long ride. Gas tank's full, washer fluid's topped up, and your tiny thimble bladder doesn't have a drop in it. We're flying now. AWESOME! Rubbing someone's newly shaved head: Feel the buzz and rub that fuzz. AWESOME!

Stomping dry crunchy leaves on the sidewalk: Baby buds pop out in the spring, healthy leaves fly high all summer, and then they crumble and tumble down to the sidewalk. Yes, the sun rose, the sun set, months went by, and the earth actually tilted on its axis before this moment could appear before you. Now enjoy the crispy crunch that comes when your sneakers smash a brittle little leaf into smithereens. AWESOME! Realizing you still remembered your childhood friend's phone number: Realizing you still remember old phone numbers gives a great smile-and-sunshine vibe. Lips curl, eyes twinkle, and memory reels start whirring on the rusty projector as you remember dialing those digits, day after day, day after, day after day. Making plans for the park, grumbling about teachers, whispering about cute classmates late at night, you just suddenly remember those times, those moments, and those old friends. AWESOME!



Review

Praise for THE BOOK OF AWESOME

"Neil Pasricha is the guru of small joys." --The Toronto Star

"Strangely heartwarming... perfect for rainy days." -- The New Yorker

"Pasricha emerges a committed but inviting optimist, combating life's unending stream of bad news by identifying opportunities to share a universal high-five with humanity." --Publisher's Weekly

"It's nice to remind yourself of life's sweeter side and the pleasures from the small things -- like peeling the thin plastic film off new electronics or sneaking snacks into the cinemas. Life really is awesome after all." --The Guardian

"Sunny without being saccharine, it's a countdown of life's little joys that reads like a snappy Jerry Seinfeld monologue by way of Maria Von Trapp." --The Vancouver Sun

"Laugh-out-loud funny tinged with just enough sarcastic nostalgia." --WIRED

I posted this on Amazon.com, but wanted to share it here too:

I recently received an advanced copy of The Book of Even More Awesome (BOEMA) won via Twitter contest. Having had a chance to read it in advance of its release was itself awesome, so I am sharing this brief review.

Frequently, the problem with sequels is we want them to be exactly the same as the original while, at the same time, being completely different - more often than not, they are unable to live up to that promise.

The BOEMA is a rare book that lives up to the challenge. It manages to retain the sweetness and humour of the original while giving us a completely different set of things that make us smile.

Like Volume 1, The BOEMA is a reminder that there is a great deal of awesomeness in this mundane world of the everyday. And that, is worth revisiting.
