Of everything that’s happened since I launched Raptitude, what I’m most proud of is that I’ve attracted a such an intelligent and discerning audience. That flatters me to no end and assures me I’m doing something right.
I feel extremely lucky to be able to bounce ideas off a large group of particularly thoughtful people. I’d like to hear your thoughts about something.
I’ve been approached by major publisher asking if I’d thought about doing a book.
Something may or may not come of this, but I’ll be writing a book sooner or later anyway. Thematically, there are lots of places to go with it. Essentially Raptitude is about human evolution through personal evolution, but that includes a lot: living in modern society, contending with the human condition, courting habit change, honing quality-of-life skills, fluff-free spirituality, self-reliance, self-examination, practicing sanity in its various forms, and even making cookies.
So I have three questions for you. I’d appreciate your answer to any or all of them, as well as any other comments you might have.
1) Would you read a Raptitude book?
2) What is Raptitude about, to you?
3) What would you like to see in a book?
Even if you don’t normally comment — and I know the vast majority of readers don’t — I’d like to hear what you have to say about this.
Thank you. You guys are the best.

It's simpler and easier than you probably think, and I'd love to show you. Learn more here.
