Review: Go Ahead & Like It by Jacquelin Suskin

Thursday, April 30, 2015
About the book: An artistic, smart self-help book that prompts and inspires readers to write lists of things they like--a simple yet profound way to collect and remember the good in daily life.

This scrapbook-style art book is an invitation to write lists of things you like: small things that bring delight, intriguing things that excite, and meaningful things that make every day special. It's a how-to guide, writing prompt, model for self-discovery, and beautiful inspiration for daily gratitude, with poet Jacqueline Suskin's personal lists intertwined with photographs, illustrations, and instruction. It's a self-help book for people who might not be drawn to standard self-help, and it's creative thinking for people who might not identify themselves as creative thinkers (What does it mean to "like" something in today's digital age, anyways?). Above all, it presents a simple, dependable method to notice the good that's all around us--even in a traffic jam or waiting in line--so we can inhabit our world more fully and smile more in the process.
My Review: When I read about this book, I thought it would be all about lists as well as it would have some space for the reader to create his or her own list after reading about them. It wasn't really what I was expecting. It was a very nice book, filled with many different types of lists and beautiful pictures. It also guides you into list making. I have a list for almost everything so this was pretty nice. It wasn't what I was expecting but it was still nice.Taking into account the type of book this is, I would have to go with a rating accordingly. Therefore:
