Book Blurb: You Are Awesome by Neil Pasricha
From Neil Pasricha—New York Times, million-copy bestselling author of The Book of Awesome series and The Happiness Equation, thought leader for the next generation, and one of the most popular TED speakers in the world—comes a revelatory and inspiring book that will change the way we view failure and help us build resilience.
We are lucky. For most of us, famine, plague, economic depression, and other life-threatening catastrophes are the stuff of history books. We’re living in an era with the highest-ever rates of longevity, education, and wealth. Cars drive us home as our phones entertain us before we arrive at food delivered to the front door. We have it all!
But there’s just one side effect. We no longer have the tools to handle failure…or even perceived failure. When we fall, we lie on the sidewalk crying. When we spill, we splatter. When we crack, we shatter.
We are turning into an army of porcelain dolls.
A rude email from the boss means calling in sick. Only two likes on our post mean we don’t have friends. Cell phones show us we’re never good enough. Yesterday’s butterflies are tomorrow’s panic attacks. Record numbers of students have clinical anxiety. And what about depression, loneliness, and suicide?
What do we desperately need to learn?
RESILIENCE. And we need to learn it fast.
Read You Are Awesome to learn:
• The single word that keeps your options open after failure
• What every commencement speech gets wrong
• 3 ways to dramatically accelerate your ability to learn and adapt
• The 2-minute morning practice that helps eliminate the worry
• Why you need an Untouchable Day (and how to get one)
• and much, much more…
Because the truth is, you really are awesome.
Book Review: You Are Awesome by Neil Pasricha
Reading defines your personality making it rich with knowledge and also helps in enhancing your wisdom from within. Every reader has its taste. I prefer self-care books as they seem practical in their approach. While making my quest fulfilled, I came across “You Are Awesome” by Neil Pasricha. The subtitle of this book fascinated me the most as it stated, ‘How to Navigate Change, Wrestle with Failure, and Live an Intentional Life‘.
Moreover, the subtitle of “You Are Awesome” by Neil Pasricha represented the crux of the 288 pages in just a single sentence. The author, Neil Pasricha has wonderfully constructed 9 different “secrets” breaking the book wholeness apart and introducing positive habits in form of actions or thoughts which one can incorporate on daily basis, without any excuses. A book granting no excuses is indeed exceptional and of course, beautiful.
The incredible zone of the book lies in the author’s sincere heartfelt personal stories. He uncovers all the mistakes committed, the hard times which made him dig up and also all those dark occurrences which molded him stronger, courageous & a being never-stepping back.

The author’s way of handling challenges was quite interesting reading and using in day to day life. The memory tool is the second most important aspect incorporated in the book.
In every new section at the beginning, he layers up the secrets, making the readers feel extremely connected and willingly through repetition succeed. The 7th section of the book used many mnemonic devices to a larger extent.
The author has created this book so pleasantly by fixing nine ideas in a single package that also so provoking in nature. I bet on this that none can ever forget the principles listed inside if followed exactly the way it is. Be assured with the results of living a life virtuous and worthy. He was entirely focused on being positive through the lane of following his nine secrets, where attainment of goals stands not very far.
