This memoir in letter form demonstrates the emotional power of positivity. Author Michael Coccari recounts the events in his life through a series of thank-yous to the people who helped him and shaped him in these moments. Though not every memory is a happy or easy one for Coccari, the words he has for the people who lived life alongside him are always fond, always gentle, always in the best possible terms. Coccari seems to be telling readers not that life will always be fair and pleasant, but that we all have a choice in how we look at the things that happen to us and that, if we try, we can find something to appreciate in any experience. The joy and love in these letters makes them go down easy. Readers will find themselves easily pouring through several at a time and maybe finding the gratitude in their own memories in the process.
