Love is not the only thing that blossoms with a smile. Your entire life can be transformed by the simple act of turning up the corners of your mouth. And psychologists have proven that you benefit by smiling-even when you're convinced you have nothing to smile about!Now the power of the smile gets a boost from three grinning fools: Lisa Birnbach, Ann Hodgman, and Patty Marx, the threesome who thought up the deceptively simple yet highly effective 1,003 Great Things to Smile About. This latest volume in the 1,003 Great Things humor series takes the effort out of smiling by providing just the thoughts needed to produce that all-enhancing smile.Consider the following examples:o Your son remembers your birthday . . . and doesn't reverse the charges!o Luggage-on-wheelso Your extra-large, threadbare sweatpantso Snow day!o Your sister will do Thanksgiving this year.o Spellchecko The way Play-doh smellso Sunless tanning creamsSmiles can indeed work magic, and these witty writers have concocted enough ideas to keep readers grinning day after day. This is the perfect make-somebody-feel-good book, a semiserious way to bring perspective to your own life and a great tool to help readers smile more at themselves and those around them. A book that offers a warm perspective on feeling right with the world . . . now that's something to smile about!
