Hooray For Everything!

"HOORAY FOR EVERYTHING is a wonderful collection of stories and insights to put a skip back into your step. Happiness is a choice and Ian Tyson will kick start your journey and fuel it with optimism."

There are a lot of things we encounter every day that can make it easy to choose to be negative. Stresses at school, work or home can all add up to an unfortunate change in the way we react to and treat others. That attitude spreads like a virus.


With his first book, "Hooray For Everything! The Optimist Manifesto" renowned speaker Ian Tyson looks to reverse that trend. Ian's anecdotal stories, essays, tips and rants tackle the in's and out's of staying positive no matter what life throws at you. Whether it's learning the power of "No", practicing some Uncommon Courtesy, or examining some of the 2000 choices we make in a day, this relatable read will help you to see that glass is indeed always half full!
