Gratitude has a way of increasing the good things that come to and from us, as positivity begets and multiplies positivity. Teens are often criticized for being entitled, greedy, spoiled, and ungrateful. Teens who demonstrate a spirit of gratitude also draw people to them and inspire a desire to help them succeed and reach their goals. This, in turn, results in a strong network of connections, superb college recommendations, employment tips, and great job offers. Teachers and librarians will have reason to feel gratitude when they see how well this text meets various informational text reading standards of the Common Core curriculum, including summarizing text, determining a central idea and its supporting details, tracing and evaluating an argument and its specific claims, determining the validity of the author's reasoning and evidence, and determining an author's point of view and purpose.

Gratitude, like other positive emotions, has inspired many theological and philosophical writings, but it has inspired very little vigorous, empirical research. In an effort to remedy this oversight, this volume brings together prominent scientists from various disciplines to examine what has become known as the most-neglected emotion. The volume begins with the historical, philosophical, and theoretical foundations of gratitude, then presents the current research perspectives from social, personality, and developmental psychology, as well as from primatology, anthropology, and biology. The volume also includes a comprehensive, annotated bibliography of research on gratitude. This work contributes a great deal to the growing positive psychology initiative and to the scientific investigation of positive human emotions. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers and students in social, personality, and developmental, clinical, and health psychology, as well as to sociologists and cultural anthropologists.

“My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved. I have been given much and I have given something in return. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.” —Oliver Sacks No writer has succeeded in capturing the medical and human drama of illness as honestly and as eloquently as Oliver Sacks. During the last few months of his life, he wrote a set of essays in which he movingly explored his feelings about completing a life and coming to terms with his own death. “It is the fate of every human being,” Sacks writes, “to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death.” Together, these four essays form an ode to the uniqueness of each human being and to gratitude for the gift of life. “Oliver Sacks was like no other clinician, or writer. He was drawn to the homes of the sick, the institutions of the most frail and disabled, the company of the unusual and the ‘abnormal.’ He wanted to see humanity in its many variants and to do so in his own, almost anachronistic way—face to face, over time, away from our burgeoning apparatus of computers and algorithms. And, through his writing, he showed us what he saw.” —Atul Gawande, author of Being Mortal

In this century, the topic of gratitude has received little more than passing attention, yet, in earlier periods of Anglo-American moral philosophy, ingratitude was treated as a serious vice. Terrance McConnell provides the first contemporary philosophical exploration of the phenomenon of gratitude. Arguing that it is both an obligation and a moral sentiment, he discusses ways in which gratitude seems to conflict with other important theses in ethical theory. He offers examples from several contexts, including political and filial obligations and relations between friends and casual acquaintances. McConnell describes conditions that generate debts of gratitude, the requirements of such debts, and the relationship between moral requirements and emotions. He discusses the question of whether gratitude toward someone interferes with the impartiality that is morally required in other situations. He also shows how various moral traditions--utilitarianism, Kantianism, and the ethics of virtue--can account for some aspects of the morality of gratitude, but not all. Author note: Terrance McConnell is Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The centuries-old Law of Attraction reveals that being grateful for what's already present in life automatically attracts more good things. And while many of today's most successful people keep their own daily gratitude journal, other people are unable to fit one more to-do in their busy lives—until now. Simplicity and ease of use are the keys to why this journal works. The companion to Jack Canfield's Key to Living the Law of Attraction, this journal provides an organized framework to honor blessings instead of complaints—to uncover what's right instead of wrong; and in so doing, to help people identify what it is they truly value in their lives and what they want more of. With a stunning design, a month-by-month layout, plus inspiring thoughts from the world's most perceptive thinkers, this simple, thought-provoking journal will be a valuable tool to bring about positive change in anyone's life.
