I have a client with a new book about happiness and gratitude that I think you'll be interested in. Introducing the new book “Thanks! How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier” by “positive psychologist” Dr. Robert Emmons. He spent eight years doing experiments on gratitude and is now revealing the extraordinary and encouraging results – thankful people are healthier and happier with benefits – spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional – that come from adopting an “attitude of gratitude.” You can visit www.thanksbook.com for more information. I encourage you to spread the word about this book to your blog audience!
