    1. I wanted this to be good I did But it s not There isn t enough neurology in it to be science book There aren t enough solid examples in it to be a how to manual It s sort of a wishy washy mess that can be summed up in the words, Maybe you could somehow add a little surprise to your life because it makes things, well, better It s an overly long blog post and a total waste of what little time it takes to readchokengtitik

    2. Easiest time iin the space between covers I ve spent in a while This is a delightful read, with beautiful life changing perspectives and science to refocus the world around you Highly recommend


    3. To be honest, i only half read it I skimmed it and then stopped halfway through It wasn t engaging enough Last week I read The Power of Moments, which I found very engaging and relevant, and I got the name of this book from a list of recommended reading at the end of that book, thinking this would expand on the great ideas I was getting from the moments book Skip this book and read The Power of Moments.



    4. OH my GOODNESS I LOVED this book I smiled my way through it The book is filled with gems and insights that are applicable to ANYONE but especially to creatives, teachers, faith sojourners, team leaders, life partners I wish I could just download the book into my BRAIN Thank you, Tania Leeann, for writing this.



    5. My best friend recommended that I read this book, and at first I thought, hmm, I am already good at surprise and finding interesting things in everyday, but ok, I ll try it The design of the book is modern, attractive, cute the idea is pretty intriguing The best part, however, are the last two chapters, cultivate relationships, and surprise yourself These ladies offer real advice in the form of specific exercises you can do to transform your day, your outlook, even, they boast, your world The au [...]


    6. A quick read, if you can get yourself to focus on it I however, had to come back and forth to it I enjoyed it, but it never quite drew me in to make it the book I wanted to be reading than other books It s half narrative non fiction, half self help book I liked a lot of the ideas put forth in this book There are lots of things that I want to try for myself and ideas that I want to implement in groups I work with in the future My complaints were that there seemed to be stories that weren t finis [...]


    7. I haven t finished this book yet, so when I m done I ll decide between 4 or 5 stars.It was obvious from the start that I would love it since I love feeling surprised, but I think this book could be just as valuable or even so for those who hate not knowing what s coming or stress over having to adapt to new situations Surprise will help you deal with the unpredictable and incorporate the beauty of the unexpected to make daily life feel fulfilling.Enjoyment of life radiates from the book and it [...]


    8. I received this book for free as a giveaway on This book was a bit all over the place It attempted to weave together a bunch of loosely connected themes and it just didn t work Ironically, there is a reference to a red thread tying together their surprises which by the way, they never gave an example of a real surprise experience just generic info and yet there was no red thread tying the themes of this book together It was not scientific enough to be a serious work and not relevant or interesti [...]


    9. 4.75 starsEspecially after hearing the authors work for a company that makes surprise, I harbored a lot of thoughts The writing is on the whimsical side What would you expect from people who specialize in surprises At the end of each chapter, the authors offer a bite size summary which helps a lot I took a liking to the ideas of living in the fog , Burying a cookie and Red Thread It is lacking in a lot of hard facts, like neurological scans I hate those any way , with stories I couldn t imagin [...]


    10. Very well done Not surprisingly, surprise can make a big difference in the way we experience the world We feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they re not.Most of us know this The question to me is why we waste any of our time in our life not feeling alive.If you are a business person especially an owner of a company, and are looking for a wake up call this book is a very worthy read


    11. This is a fascinating book about how surprise is important to our lives, both for ourselves and for our interactions with others Tania and Leanne do a very good job of walking the reader through the philosophy and science behind surprise, how you can implement in general, how you can use it to improve other s lives, and how you can use it to improve your life It interested me so much that I plan to reread it so I can absorb even .


    12. probably 3.5 stars, but since it s well organized and i found the cheat sheets at the end of each section very helpful, i m bumping it up i initially picked this up to refresh my mind for work, as i organize programs and work with speakers interestingly, i had many personal takeaways and found myself nodding my head in many sections about relationships in fact, right away, i built surprise into a couple of gestures, prompted by this book


    13. This is a short book, but it took me a long time to read and absorb Before I return it to the library, I plan to make some notes There is a lot in this book about cultivating surprise in our everyday lives, but there is also a lot about creating the experience for customers I feel like the library could use a shot of that.


    14. Psychology of Surprise Lots of practical tips to use in personal life and business References Seth Godin, Brene Brown, Daniel Gilbert, Ester Perel, John Gottman, and many others Typed all the notes from the end of the chapters.


    15. Maybe it s because I own a company that runs corporate scavenger hunts for a living, but I thought this book was a great mix of thoughtful insight clearly explained research I found it helpful both on a professional and a personal level.



    16. Pushes us to embrace the unexpected, good and bad As a pastor, I found the surprising insights to be particularly useful for preaching.
