Book Review~Go Ahead and Like it

Go Ahead & Like It by Jacqueline Suskin
 
 

 
 
Go ahead and like it. NO REALLY... What an ingenious little book this one is. I adore the cover and the simplicity of it but the real greatness lies within. Jam packed full of great visuals this book is definitely geared toward us crafties. Bringing back the art of lists and sharing your love in such an ingenious way is what got me from the very start. The entire book seems to be laid out like a smash book where lists are "adhered" to different pages that include images and words of the heart. All of the different fonts look so wonderful together and would be great for any art journeyers, bible journeyers or the like. I would highly recommend this book to those who enjoy lists, planners, memory keeping, smash booking and different types of art journaling.
 
An artistic, smart self-help book that prompts and inspires readers to write lists of things they like–a simple yet profound way to collect and remember the good in daily life.
This scrapbook-style art book is an invitation to write lists of things you like: small things that bring delight, intriguing things that excite, and meaningful things that make every day special. It’s a how-to guide, writing prompt, model for self-discovery, and beautiful inspiration for daily gratitude, with poet Jacqueline Suskin’s personal lists intertwined with photographs, illustrations, and instruction. It’s a self-help book for people who might not be drawn to standard self-help, and it’s creative thinking for people who might not identify themselves as creative thinkers (What does it mean to “like” something in today’s digital age, anyways?). Above all, it presents a simple, dependable method to notice the good that’s all around us–even in a traffic jam or waiting in line–so we can inhabit our world more fully and smile more in the process.
