Editor’s Note

“Get Happy...”

A simple book with a simple premise - catalog awesome ideas, objects & events - is proof that the simplest things in life make for the best reasons to smile.
Alex P.
Scribd Editor

Something to be happy about: This mesmerizing bestseller is revised and updated. Originally published 25 years ago (happy anniversary!) from a list that Barbara Ann Kipfer started making as a child, it’s the book that marries obsession with happiness. And it now has 4,000 fresh and more current reasons to be happy:

Rabbit tracks in the snow.
Kiteboarding and kitesurfing.
Caramel gelato.
Scoring super-high on a Scrabble turn.
Babies burping.
Summer storms.
White cupcakes with multicolored sprinkles.
Big red barns.
20 minutes all to yourself.

No opinions, no explanations, no asides, no footnotes, editorializing, or proselytizing. Just the simple premise of a list of things that make us smile. With its chunky shape, striking black-and-white cover, and 100 whimsical illustrations by Pierre Le-Tan, the new 14,000 Things is an irresistible catalog of good thoughts completely updated to reflect today’s world—and an uplifting gift for people of all moods and all ages.

Totally Inane. Pollyanna writes a book. People like this annoy me so much in everyday life already, must they also write irritating books? read more

This book has sentimental value for me, but I'd love it even if it didn't. It is exactly what it says: a list of 14,000 to be happy about. I enjoy reading from random pages every now and again. Probably a good book for a gift, or a treat for oneself.read more

I wish I hadn't released the copy I had bought just before college. It was one of the rare books where I had actually written in the margins.

Brilliant but simple concept. I haven't pulled this book off the shelf in years, but I have many fond memories of reading random pages while I was courting my wife in college. To this day I still list random things to be happy about at the bottom of emails and letters that I send her.

Cute. Some things confuse me a bit as to why someone would be happy about them, but cute nonetheless.
