As the disclaimer states in the description above, this book is not for everyone, but it was awesome in my opinion. I am going to admit that I am incredibly biased. I absolutely adored Pam's other books on New Age thought and had some unbelievable experiences with the experiments in them: E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality and E-Cubed: Nine More Energy Experiments That Prove Manifesting Magic and Miracles Is Your Full-Time Gig. But, I c ...more

Fun, magical, spot on in thought, silly, made me smile, and I want to pass this book out while standing on a street corner. Everyone no matter what their religion or no religion should read this because I guarantee it will have you smiling and forever thankful for all and everything in this wonderful world we live in.

I'd read two of her previous books: E2 and E3, both on the same subject. This one started out well enough, though after a while it started to seem like a rehash of old material. This was easy enough to check as I still had the earlier ones in my library. I found a lot of overlapping content.

I also checked out her website for the first time, and found the left-wing politics expressed there diametrically opposed to the content of the books, which was (or so I thought) based in self-responsibility

Thank & Grow Rich had a good message....exactly correct at its deepest level. In fact, I loved Ms. Gout's premise. However, I was not quite so enamored by the writing style, which I am sure is fun and impactful to her fans, but it did not hold my attention. In addition, I found that much of the material was redundant....returning to previously described ideas over and over again. In summary, a good fast read but it did not have the high-impact for which I was hoping. ...more

I always feel more uplifted and hopeful after reading a Pam Grout book. This one is a great reminder of how such a simple thing like gratitude can change your life. I needed this reminder as the new year begins.

I bounced around on how to rate this book. Ultimately, I gave it a one because of three major problems.

First, there wasn’t really that much to it. She’s just repeating information she’s already put out (without the detail). She even says that her editor sent the book back so she could add something more.

What she added was the second problem. The majority of the book is daily “party games” designed to get you thinking positively. I can’t imagine how they could be useful for anyone but the most u

Simple, profound guide to remembering the joy we were born with that got replaced by soul-sucking distractions through the years. Refreshingly simple, this book strips away the crap that fills our lives and reminds us not to waste time on silly inconsequential things that clutter our existence until all we feel is frustration. Casually written, it's like chatting with a friend. Thank you Pam Grout for reminding me of how wonderful life can really be. I am grateful my son bought this book for me! ...more

My eyes can't roll far enough into my head. Your magic will make everything work out for you if you have the right little thankful vibration. It's not the right time in history for me to read this silliness. And I found it boring. DNF

Pam Grout never disappoints. Grab a cup of tea, and read about the power of gratitude. Start with her E-Squared and E-Cubed books for a great primer.

I enjoyed E-squared immensely, and this book is similar, although presents the exercises in a different format. The author draws heavily on 'A Course in Miracles'. Worth reading, even if all you want to do is improve your mood.

Another law of attraction practice book, still I found this very helpful right the moment reading it because Pam Grout has brought the joyful feeling on every single pages of the book.

Will try to practice it.

Let the Manifesting Begin, cause results are that quick!!!

Best Book!! First day after reading this book. I took it upon myself to declare that Today was gonna be a Amazingly Awesome day full of miracles. I had been wanting a sewing machine so bad and today felt like i wanted it more than ever. And too my surprise i get a message from my Brother saying he has a Sewing Machine for me and hell bring it up in a week. I hadn't even talked to him in a few months. These excitements work. Looking foward

Recommends it for: fans of new age mysticism.
I should have read the description and reviews more closely, rather than just the ratings. I was expecting something in the realm of positive psychology, such as books by Shawn Achor, Martin Seligman, Carol Dweck, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and others. Instead, the book is more along the lines of Shirley MacLaine, Dan Millman, Kumaré, Celestine Prophecy, and the Secret. If those are your cup of tea, you might like this book; but it wasn't what I was hoping for.

The title mentions "…Experiments…" bu

The book was much longer than it needed to be. You get her main points within the first few chapters. She admitted herself that the extras were added at the request of the publisher. It is all still worthwhile. Her material is very different from what I am used to, some of it even sounded weird. Overall a very worthwhile read. Gratitude is definitely something worth putting into your daily practice.
30 days turned into a year and six months of on and off reading. Only cause I wanted to take my time reading this purposed idea of being thankful for everything. Thirty days is just enough to get you going on something that should be done at every waking moment of your life. I enjoyed this book tremendously.

Encouraging, cheerleader, convincing, transforming

Throughout the reading of this book I was truly my most hopeful, cheerful, appreciative self. Everybody should read this book. It makes you a better person.

I just loved this book so much. Gratitude is such a huge ordeal that I know I used to take for granted in the past. Last year I started an exercise of filling an entire page each day with 30 things I was grateful for. I did this exercise for 30 days and did my absolute best not to repeat anything during those 30 days. In the end I had roughly 900 things to be grateful for in my life. After that exercise I continued filling pages with gratitude lists each day, but after a while they became sort o ...more

I rate this a 3.75 stars! I need some quarter stars, please! I first started trying to read this book more than a year ago, but the overly chatty tone, and something in the Party Tricks sort of rubbed me in a strange way. I wasn't hooked. So I read half of it, and then I put the book down. I really liked the E Squared book, but there was something that I didn't love about this one at first. Then I picked it back up recently, and was happy to finish it. The message: Up your frequency with gratitu ...more

This is a terrific book! It takes the belief I already have in a Higher Power (aka the FP, the Field of Infinite Potential) and elevates it to another level, something spiritual yet tangible. You have probably read "Think and Grow Rich" and might be a bit confused about the play on the title of this book -- it is about gratitude and being thankful for what you already have! In December I started my usual habit of setting goals for the coming year and thought that I had made no progress at all. I ...more

This is my picker-upper book. It's experiments are greatly uplifting, so every day, I like to re-read a few pages. It's fun, it's written in a humorous way that is current with today. With so much turmoil in societies around the world, it's good to remember that this isn't the only reality. I'm a fan. In fact, I even subscribe to hear other stories from other readers that come to the author and begin with -- "you're never going to believe..." My favourite takeaway is the importance of starting o ...more

From the back cover: Ever wonder why your thoughts easily create up-front parking spaces but don't always produce the fat wad of cash or the hot guy?

This is a book about gratitude, on focussing on the good that is already present. It is lighthearted and fun to read, but don't be fooled into thinking it is an airy-fairy book with not much to offer. There is a ton in this book to mull over. I borrowed a copy from the library, but often found myself wanting to refer back to it, so I bought a copy.

Excellent central idea, basically the same one covered in Make Miracles in Forty Days: Turning What You Have Into What You Want, books by Abraham Hicks, and many other similar gratitude/LoA-type books: that gratitude is key. But because the idea is so simple (but quite deep-- it's just that there's not much that needs to be written about the topic, imo, it's something that needs to be practiced and experienced), most of the book felt very repetitive. I did like the little anecdotes about good th ...more

I need more stars!

I read a lot of happiness/self-improvement books, and it really annoys me when they say "just write a gratitude list (of X amount of things you are thankful for) every morning and evening". I never remember to do it (feel guilty about not remembering) and when I do remember, it starts to feel like a chore. This is NOT one of those books.

It is all about Gratitude, but gratitude/thankfulness/appreciation ALL of the time, not just once or twice a day. And having fun along the w

OMG. Or is it OMDB? (Read the book and you'll understand.) After 18 months of witnessing the worst of what America has to offer, followed by a new government that already resembles a low-budget reality show, this book truly was a divine gift. I read it with a big smile on my face, thinking about all the people I love who will get a copy for Christmas. THIS is how we'll make America great again... by learning to be thankful for everything we have and espec

If this book doesn't remind you to express gratitude and joy, then nothing else will! Unlike Pam's previous books where we have experiements, in this one we have party games. I thought the book was a bit too long but I still liked it. I especially liked the advice at the end, such as stop seeking out self-help books because what we need is already in us!

I received an advanced copy from netgalley for my honest review

This is a brilliant book with really fun exercises known as party games to help you get on and connect to the gratitude frequency. Read from cover to cover in one day and now I’m going to go back and do one party game each day over the 30 days. This book really lifts you up and explains the importance of gratitude and raising your vibration through showing gratitude to the little things in your everyday day life.

Not just a book about gratitude. I tested this out and not only did I start receiving money from an unexpected source almost the day after but it continues to come to me in new ways. This started as an experiment as I felt I already knew so much about being thankful but it changed the way I look at EVERYTHING - even the things that challenge us. A good read with practical fun exercises to incorporate into daily life.

Pam deserves more stars because reading her books is always fun, like being at a party. The other good thing about her is how she almost never repeats herself, even if this book is about the same subject that the two before were about. I only give it three stars because it's very well written and entertaining, but not a literary masterpiece. But if you are looking for a well written, uplifting and fun book to read, with some food for thought here and there, this is the one you should read.
