Praise for The Gratitude Diaries

“Uplifting and entertaining, this book is sure to give readers a more positive perspective.”—Booklist

“If you liked Sheryl Sanberg’s Lean In . . . read Janice Kaplan’s The Gratitude Diaries.”—TIME

“Kaplan’s plan to be more grateful is approachable for anyone. Her conversational tone is encouraging, like talking to a good friend who’s having a great day and wants to share it with you. . . . Simple, effective procedures that can be easily incorporated into even the busiest lifestyle.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Kaplan’s study is insightful and loaded with compelling research and solid techniques for positive thinking, and her own example provides the most convincing testament to her ideas.”—Publishers Weekly

“The subtitle says it all: How a Year Looking on the Bright Side Can Transform Your Life. Kaplan interweaves anecdotes from her year of living gratefully with interviews with doctors, psychologists, philosophers, artists, and A-list actors, teaching you that working at being happy pays off.”—American Way

“A heartfelt, thoughtful, and entertaining read on how we can bring more gratitude into our lives. It’s like The Happiness Project meets Thanksgiving—a guided tour through the science and experience of appreciation.”—Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take
“Janice Kaplan has written a warm, inspiring, wonderful book, showing each of us how gratitude and focusing on our blessings can transform our lives.”—Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author of Jemima J and The Beach House
“Can there really be such a thing as a hardheaded woman’s practical guide to living in gratitude? There can and there is. After reading about Janice Kaplan’s transformative year, I’m here to say I believe it!”—Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Deep End of the Ocean

“I recognized myself in almost every word of Janice’s excellent book. And tracking my hours was an eye-opener for me, as it appears I’m one of the people who’s been unrealistic about how I spend my days. This book is liberating, useful, and so important in this era in which everyone seems to feel overwhelmed.”—Celeste Headlee, author of We Need to Talk
