Superpowers, Playlists and Beyond in Life is Good: The Book…

Keeping on the sunny side can certainly be a daunting proposition amidst the sad news coming at us from all corners of the globe.  How do we carry on while simultaneously shouldering grief and deep concern for those around us?  One remedy is to keep handy books, music and other media that remind us of the power of optimism. One such example is Life is Good: The Book by (the brothers) Bert and John Jacobs, founders of Life is Good.  In addition to unpacking their personal and professional journeys, the book’s pages are brimming with inspiration for seeing the glass half full and then some.  In signature Life is Good visual and verse the authors share everything from suggested playlists for compassion, courage and simplicity to ten key “superpowers” that have helped them transform their homegrown T-shirt company into a “beloved lifestyle brand that touches the lives of millions.”

The book is constructed around “superpowers” available to all of us such as: openness, humor, creativity, authenticity and of course love.  Life is Good: The Book arrives at the perfect season and is a breath of fresh air suitable for readers young and old.
