The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha

The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha. Published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, 2010.

My Summary And Review

How often do you find yourself caught up in a busy day? You know the type of day: everything should have been done yesterday. Your manager/collleagues/clients are looking at you to get that project/presentation/product completed. Or, if you are a stay-at-home parent, a day of a neverending chores list to finish in between driving the kids/aging parents to various activities and appointments.

And then, there's that moment of quiet. That "regrouping" moment that happens after a major task has been completed. That fifteen minute coffee break. Those precious moments where you have arrived at your child's session/lesson a few minutes early. Those moments where you can quickly read a page from a new book or a new blog post (ideally by Neil Pasricha) and just enjoy the moment.

That moment to read... that time away from the chaos...


My Notes
I waited for months for this to come in at my library, as I'd heard about it on the radio. And was skeptical at first. But after paging through several awesome thoughts, I began to enjoy reading and reflecting on small bursts of awesome moments.
