Thank and Grow Rich: a book review

Thank & Grow Rich: A 30-Day Experiment in Shameless Gratitude and Unabashed Joy

by Pam Grout

Released August 30, 2016

Published by Hay House

As the title suggests, Thank & Grow Rich is about cultivating gratitude. Certainly this isn’t a new idea, but it is a good book.

Author Pam Grout uses a fun tone to deliver her message. Whereas some gratitude books approach the topic with reverence, Thank and Grow Rich refers to its concepts as "party tricks" and presents the ideas in a way that seem fun and inviting, rather than just another thing to list off in your journal every day. It is this tone that kept me reading and set it apart from other self-help books on the same topic.

Yet, it isn’t overly fluffy either. Grout provides some really great ideas. One that I liked, in particular, was to start each day thinking your preferred variation of, “Something amazing will happen today.” This attitude sets you up to notice the good throughout the day.

Overall, this is a fun read and should be welcome on the shelves of self-improvement readers. It could also be a fun gift for fellow readers.

Disclaimer: I received an advance-read copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I used Amazon affiliate links in this post. Should you choose to buy something through those links, you will not pay any extra, but they will send me a small fee, which I will likely add to my book fund. Thank you.
