Item description for Count Your Blessings: 63 Things to Be Grateful for in Everyday Life . . . and How to Appreciate Them by Robert W. Bly...

Including a scoring system to prove how blessings outweigh burdens, this uplifting book explores the many blessings that commonly are overlooked. Readers can experience an increased level of gratitude as they are reminded of the everyday experiences that make life more satisfying.

Publishers Description
As a child, when Robert Bly skinned his knee, his mother would always remind him to count his blessings because the injury could be worse. At the time, he found it irritating, but as an adult, he has realized the wisdom of her approach. Moreover, he has learned that in the overwhelming majority of cases, the sum of our blessings is greater than the sum of our problems. With that in mind, he offers "Count Your Blessings," a fascinating mix of more than 100 often overlooked blessings-from the seemingly trivial to the highly significant. The brief entries-on subjects such as anesthesia, flowers, opposable thumbs, and Post-it Notes-are accompanied by a unique self-scoring system that allows the reader to see in mathematical terms that the blessings in our lives almost always outnumber the misfortunes. Readers will experience an increasing level of gratitude as they are reminded of the everyday items and experiences that make life more enjoyable and satisfying.

Reviews - What do customers think about Count Your Blessings: 63 Things to Be Grateful for in Everyday Life . . . and How to Appreciate Them?

Bob Bly is a blessing!  Apr 1, 2004
I just finished "Count Your Blessings" and truly enjoyed it. It's a wonderful mix of wisdom, humor, useful/useless information, inspiration, poignance and self-exposure. We all know now that Bob, who has been a friend and mentor for almost 15 years, is every bit as human, not to mention neurotic, as rest of us.

A couple of stray comments:

1) During the summers when I was in college, I managed an amusement park on the old Steeplechase site in Coney Island. During those two months each year I ate Nathan's hot dogs (with mustard) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While it's now years between opportunities to eat one, I'm hard pressed to come up with anything I'd rather have than a Nathan's hot dog at Coney Island. (The ones at the franchise Nathan's are horrible.) The lack of availability is a good thing, however, since my digestive system can only handle them once or twice a decade these days.

2) I've got the answer for nose hair! You know that MicroTouch trimmer that's always advertised on TV for $14.99? The one that looks like a fountain pen and is touted as the way to keep your hair (head and body) trimmed? Well, I bought one and it works amazingly well (and painlessly) in cutting nose hair, as well as trimming eyebrows using the attachment included. I suspect it would also be effective in trimming ear hair, though that's the one affliction that hasn't hit me yet.

3) With hot dogs and seltzer listed as blessings, what happened to "knishes"?

Make that 64 Blessings: Add this Book to the List!  Jun 26, 2002
I read about 1/2 of "Count Your Blessings" last night and I like it!
I like how the tone is always intimate and honest, but sometimes serious and other times lighthearted. I also like how you sneak in facts to back up your statements.
Here are my favorites so far: the essay about your stroke, and the essay about freedom and the fish bowl. I especially like the structure of the fishbowl one since you directly deliver the "punchline" at the end AFTER you already made the point indirectly clear in the fish's description. (That device is also one of my favorite short story tricks.)
Thanks for the book, Bob!
Moving, inspiring, funny and wise  Jun 12, 2002
I have had many mentors over the last few decades.
One has helped me more than others. He is one of the most
successful freelance writers alive. He has helped me, and
numerous others, without ever expecting any return. I just
learned that this same man went through a stroke, at the
age of 44. Fortunately, he's recovered, and he's written a
wonderful book about gratitude. I'm talking about Bob Bly.
His new book inspired and delighted me while making
me feel glad for the little things in my life. Please read it.
Share it with others. Give it as gifts to strangers on the street. This is a rare, wonderful, uplifting book. -- Joe Vitale, author "Spiritual Marketing"
