Item description for And Now for the Good News: A Mega-dose of Positive News to Inform, Inspire, and Fill You With Optimism by Sue Ray...
We've supersized our homes, cars, meals--and our news. With continuous TV, Internet, newspaper, and radio coverage--all that news time to fill--we hear the same negative stories, accompanied by the same negative images, over and over and . . . It's enough to leave us feeling hopeless!
The truth is, this hyper bad-news environment isn't giving us an accurate picture of our world. If we were aware of all the individuals acting with generosity and even courage to help their communities and beyond, the surprisingly positive trends regarding crime rates and international conflicts, the many businesses and organizations getting creative and making the world a better place, we'd see there's a whole lot to be optimistic about.
And Now for the Good News is an exploration of American news and media consumption and its effect on our individual and collective psyches. But more than that, it's a refreshing antidote to all the bad news, with positive news and trends and helpful resources that will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. Read it and share the good news--especially with your kids; they need some positive news, too.

An intellectually, emotionally and spiritually uplifting testimony Jan 8, 2008
And Now for the Good News... is a nonfiction testimony presented to counterbalance the seemingly unending torrent of dismal news that pours from television, newspaper, and internet sources day in and day out. Good news ranges from a major new study (the 2005 Human Security Report) revealing that political violence has sharply declined worldwide since the early 1990s, to the record high life expectancy rate found in the U.S. (77.9 years), to a decline in illegal drug use among U.S. teens (down 23.3% in the last five years with reductions in every drug, including alcohol and cigarettes), and much more. An intellectually, emotionally and spiritually uplifting testimony featuring meticulously documented sources, highly recommended as an antidote to CNN depression.
Restores your faith in humanity Dec 1, 2007
And Now for the Good News in a society mostly focused on bad news, is news, indeed. Badly needed news at that. What Al Gore does with his video on healing our planet, Sue Ray does with this book to bring into balance our distorted world view. As she says in her book, "how we frame the issue matters." Citing examples of what has already been accomplished gives us the heart and impetus of wanting to do the same. Words are worlds. Instead of focusing on the word `fight' in "the fight against global warming," let us focus on the words `help' and `healing' in "help our planet heal itself." Read this book. It will restore your faith in humanity.
Focus on the positive Nov 22, 2007
What resonates with me is the conscious creation / law of attraction aspect of this inspiring book. We get what we focus on, so it makes sense that what we chose to pay attention to on the news affects each of us on many levels. Why not pay more attention to the positive events and people in the world? This book is a great reminder that there are many people in this world creating positive change that benefits us all.
