Publisher's Summary

From Neil Pasricha - New York Times, million-copy best-selling author of The Book of Awesome series and The Happiness Equation, thought leader for the next generation, and one of the most popular TED speakers in the world - comes a revelatory and inspiring book that will change the way we view failure and help us build resilience. 

Why is life getting harder instead of easier?
How do I get back up after life knocks me down?
And how do I grow stronger and live more intentionally? 

These are just some of the big life questions Neil tackles in his motivating new book You Are Awesome. And Neil knows what he’s talking about - he’s dealt with many failures and flops throughout his life and, in addition to sharing these intimacies, he also offers simple, research-backed models we can all use to get back up and stay on track. 

Resilience is a skill in desperately short supply today. One side effect of living in our era of abundance is that we no longer have the tools to handle failure or even perceived failure. We are turning into an army of porcelain dolls. We no longer bend, we break. When we spill, we splatter. When we crack, we shatter. The New York Times reports that nearly two-thirds of college students report “overwhelming anxiety.” Cell phones show us we’re never good enough. And what about rates of depression, loneliness, and suicide? All rising! 

The world is ready for Neil’s new approach to resilience in the form of nine accessible, story-based, science-backed secrets that will help you live stronger and with intention. By taking this journey with Neil as your guide, you’ll learn how to navigate failure, how to positively reframe your own perceptions, and ultimately, how to become your most unbreakable, powerful and awesome self. 

Written in Pasricha’s trademark high-energy, takeaway-laden awesome style, this book is for everyone - including fresh grads walking into their first jobs, anyone processing a breakup, people whose industries or careers are quickly getting disrupted, parents wanting to help children be mentally tougher, children wanting to help parents be mentally tougher, and millennials looking for a flashlight to help illuminate the dark path of adulthood. 

This book is for anyone who needs to be reminded that every problem is an opportunity, that every dead end has a hidden door, and that every step back is ultimately a step forward. 

Pssst.... This book is also a little reminder that YOU ARE AWESOME.

Feeling happier already :)

Neil Pasricha’s presentation of his book is lovely, easy to listen to, it felt like a friend was telling me stories from his family’s life and offering advice to help make my life happier. Neil pulls together lots of different research regarding success, positive mindsets and happiness. I really like the way the books is structured into 9 different key points (or secrets). He also repeats key points, and each chapter almost feels like it has a learning intention for the reader.

Simply Amazing!

I had low expectations for this book, but I was so blown away by it! Short and to the point with powerful messages an very useful tips! A very good book to read for anyone! My fave part of the book was dean's advice that encourages to find your 'small pond'. I loved this book! Would like a summary sheet so i can keep referring to it.
