Thanks A Thousand by AJ Jacobs


The author, a writer, decided to thank all the people who contributed to his morning cup of coffee.  He found there were MANY, so he limited it to one thousand.  He called many people and even travelled out of the country.  Gratitude is something we probably don’t think about very often, but especially in our globally connected world, there are many people to be thanked.  It is an eye-opening project.
