    " I found this book to be quite uplifting. I've recommended it to a couple patients of mine who need a book on gratitude that is a little more research based and less "woo woo" than some of my other more spiritual/new agey books on the subject. I see this book as a gateway book into the deeper ones like The Power by Rhonda Byrne. "
