Grateful:  The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks                      by Diana Butler Bass

Are we as aware of gratitude as our ancestors were?  That’s doubtful because….”Society is awash with a loneliness epidemic.”  Gratitude is about relationships, not about repaying debts. The book surprised me.  I thought, ‘…another book on being grateful–it’ll likely be redundant.’  It’s not!  This book is an invitation to become aware of gratitude in new ways.

“What is gratitude:  an emotion, an ethical way of life, an awareness, a disposition, a set of habits, and the place we  find out truest and best selves.”  Therefore, like love, gratitude multiples thru giving and receiving.  This is a wonderful book, one I’ve added to my own library!  There IS a transformative power in giving thanks.  Most highly recommended.  Reviewed by Merry Van Deusen
