Thanks A Thousand:
A Gratitude Journey

The idea was deceptively simple: New York Times bestselling author A.J. Jacobs decided to thank every single person involved in producing his morning cup of coffee. The resulting journey takes him across the globe, transforms his life, and reveals secrets about how gratitude can make us all happier, more generous, and more connected.

“It's a novel idea, and it works as more than just a clever plot device thanks to the author's typically conversational tone and self-deprecating examination of his own need to be more gracious. Thanks to the miracle of caffeine, the author delivers a stirring, nonpreachy sermon on gratitude.”

Kirkus Reviews

"[Jacobs's] candid tone and genuine curiosity lead to fascinating
conversations and establish human connections that deliver satisfying jolts of perspective."
