In stores November 3rd, the book retails for $14.95 and the eco friendly game for $24.99. The book offers 101 inspirational stories about navigating life’s toughest challenges by finding blessings-in-disguise and opens with stories from the co-authors. Robinson recounts the ups and downs of inventing her million dollar game and Bryan shares the story of her personal “count your blessings” journey when she learned to find gratitude after a serious car accident nearly took her life at nineteen years of age. The book is filled with contributor’s inspiring tales that share the silver linings found in life’s greatest challenges from grave illness to great loss and foreclosure – there is a story in this book that will touch everyone’s heart.

The game uses engaging copy and logic to help players navigate every day scenarios, going from “tired to inspired” or stressed to blessed” by heading to the “Thank Tank” or wearing the whimsical “Look on the Bright Side” glasses.
