About The Thank-You Project

The Thank-You Project tells the story of the year that writer/podcaster Nancy Davis Kho wrote thank-you letters to 50 people, places, and pastimes that had shaped her, inspired her, and helped her become the person she was. The list of recipients included family and friends, of course, but soon expanded to teachers, bosses, mentors, authors, cities, hobbies and even a handful of ex-boyfriends and former friends. (Don’t worry, turns out you don’t have to mail every letter you write to yield the happiness benefits of gratitude!) It was a wholly unexpected way to find more peace during what turned out to be a trying and turbulent time, and continues to yield benefits years down the road.

Using her own story as a springboard and the emerging science of happiness to understand why gratitude letters work, Nancy gives practical and reassuring guidance to her readers who want to start their own Thank-You Project. The book will make you laugh, think, and start drafting your list of letter recipients by the end of Chapter 1.
