To help create a state of happiness,
This review is from: Secret Gratitude Book (Hardcover)
I understand that some folk would be heartily disappointed to find out that this is in fact a notebook. However, for those of you who need guidance in what a gratitude list should entail this little beauty will help you start it.
The arguments above suggest that - if only they knew it wasn't a real book then they could have bought a notebook instead for a £1! Yes and again that's a very good point. However, I would suggest that the purpose of this book is to make you think of what you should be grateful for - for that day.
Its cover shouts "Gratitude list!" - which instantly springs your mind into positivity. Thus emphasising the whole point of being grateful and what the Secret is all about. Next, begin by putting the date at the top of the page - No. 1 I am grateful for being alive. No. 2 I am grateful for having body parts that work... etc.
I've had suggestions of doing a list with at least 10 things on it a day. Most people start by saying, blimey! 10 things!! I can't do that. But in time and with practice you will start to see all those amazing things around you start springing to life.
For people who want to be told how to live then this is not for you. If you are someone who is willing to perhaps try a different song then this is a tool to help aid you in that journey. It's a place where you can store all that gratitude. Then once you get the hang of it you can buy and create your own Gratitude book and decorate it how you wish.
I think it is a lovely idea and will help anyone starting out on the internal quest to happiness.

Having seen this book in the bookshop - I know what you mean by it being similar to a notebook and after seeing it we did make our own pretty notebooks - though not as lovely as this. But I may yet still buy one for my 15 year old daughter who is very keen on the Law of Attraction (and has seen it in the shops) as a present, she has just finished taking her GCSE's. It's a very beautiful notebook with 'some' (but not much) writing in it.
