In his first book, Thanks, Robert Emmons explored the science of the emotions and of gratitude drawn from psychology, neuroscience, self-help and philosophy. But readers wanted more--they wanted answers to the question of how, exactly, gratitude can be cultivated as a way of life. Gratitude Works! shows readers the best practices to foster gratitude. This book will reveal how dramatic advances in science have turned from does gratitude work to  how do we get more of it? This exciting new book explores these evidence-based practices in a compelling and accessible way and provides a step-by-step guide that offers the tools to help people cultivate gratitude in their lives. As with Thanks, this new book will discuss religious, philosophical and spiritual traditions in detail and reveal how some of the greatest insights of science validate the ideas that the greatest religious leaders have propounded for centuries.
