Another great list of awesome things in life. The author's reflections on his failing marriage at the end are really poignant.

Too cliche! Thats all I can say .... like seriously we all knew that the smell of bacon in the morning is the best thing ever! Are people really that down and out that there is a book to remind them that bacon smells good?

A great continuation of the previous book, although checking the website might be more convenient.

A few favourites from the brand new Awesome book:

* Picking the fastest-moving line at the grocery store checkout
* Eating anything from your own garden
* When that social event you didn't want to go to gets canceled
* Fitting every last thing in the dishwasher
* Carrying all the grocery bags in from the car in one giant trip
* That one car that randomly travels with you on the highway for a really long time.
