Synopsis:

Something to be happy about: This mesmerizing bestseller is revised and updated. Originally published 25 years ago (happy anniversary!) from a list that Barbara Ann Kipfer started making as a child, it’s the book that marries obsession with happiness. And it now has 2,000 fresh and more current reasons to be happy:

Rabbit tracks in the snow.
Kiteboarding and kitesurfing.
Caramel gelato.
Scoring super-high on a Scrabble turn.
Babies burping.
Summer storms.
White cupcakes with multicolored sprinkles.
Big red barns.
20 minutes all to yourself.

No opinions, no explanations, no asides, no footnotes, editorializing, or proselytizing. Just the simple premise of a list of things that make us smile. With its chunky shape, striking black-and-white cover, and 100 whimsical illustrations by Pierre Le-Tan, the new 14,000 Things is an irresistible catalog of good thoughts completely updated to reflect today’s world—and an uplifting gift for people of all moods and all ages.


Review:
No opinions, no explanations, no asides, footnotes, editorializing, or proselytizing. And all in a plain white cover with large black type. With over one million copies in print, 14,000 Things to Be Happy About is the mesmerizing bestseller that celebrates all the little things that make life worth living. Any random page is an instant pick-me-up, and reading it is as irresistible as popcorn:

• new babies
• a well-crafted chair
• having a sense of your own space
• a real person answering the phone
• peninsulas
• leaves snuggled around the foundations of old country houses
• staying home on New Year’s Eve

Now revised and updated, with 1,500 new entries—the feel of the fur in Ugg boots, a favorite television program caught on TiVo— 14,000 Things to Be Happy About is a panacea for a new time and a new generation, an antidote to the all-too-many things we might be unhappy about. Adding to the pleasure are 125 joyous and jewel-like illustrations from Pierre Le-Tan.
