Looking Up

book cover image The Gratitude Diaries

One New Year's Eve, journalist Janice Kaplan made a promise to be grateful, no matter what happens. How she feels over the next months will have less to do with the events that occur than her own attitude. Getting advice at every turn from psychologists, doctors, and philosophers, Kaplan explores how gratitude can transform every aspect of life.

For example, she learns how appreciating your spouse changes the neurons of your brain and why saying thanks helps CEOs succeed.

For more on the psychology of attitude.
