The Little Book of Gratitude: Create a Life of Happiness and Wellbeing by Giving Thanks
While the title sounds like a gift book—found at a Hallmark check-out counter—don’t let either the title or the diminutive size, dissuade you from reading it. Nothing about this colorful book containing lighthearted illustrations is small. Gratitude is one of the biggest gifts you can give yourself and others. Dr. Emmons, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Gratitude Lab at the University of California, Davis writes that gratitude “is the truest approach to life.” Using Neuroscience evidence, proven exercises (that decrease depression and anxiety), whimsical typography, and joyful drawings, Dr. Emmons creates an engaging, quick, and practical guide to cultivating gratitude.
