The Gratitude Diaries: How a Year Looking on the Bright Side Can Transform Your Life by Janice Kaplan

"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

Gratitude: An Intellectual History by Peter J. Leithart

"This is no 'gratitude lite' approach with its blending of philosophical, theological, political, and social sciences perspectives. Leithart persuasively makes a case for why gratitude is intrinsically interesting."

—Robert Emmons, co-editor of The Psychology of Gratitude, and author of Thanks! and Gratitude Works!
