Why I Love the 3 A’s of Awesome
In , Neil Pasricha's world fell apart after a sudden divorce and death of a close friend. He channeled his energies into his blog Awesome Things, which counted down one small pleasure -- like snow days, bakery air or finding money in your coat pocket -- every single day for straight days. While writing his blog, Neil was working as Director of Leadership Development inside Walmart, the world's largest company. He continued working there when his books The Book of Awesome , The Book of Even More Awesome and Awesome is Everywhere were published and started climbing bestseller lists and shipping millions of copies. Years later, he fell in love again and got married. On the airplane home from his honeymoon, his wife told him she was pregnant, and Neil began writing again. The result was a page letter written to his unborn son sharing the nine secrets to finding true happiness.

And they got here in the late s. They settled in a shady suburb about an hour east of Toronto, and they settled into a new life. They saw their first dentist, they ate their first hamburger, and they had their first kids.
