"Silent gratitude isnít much to anyone." óGertrude Stein

"Knight has lit the path of gratitude and spurred us to make this important spiritual practice the center of our lives. The quotations, exercises, and inspirational passages reveal the author's deep understanding of the bounties of spirituality put into our relationships, activities, and rituals." ó Spirituality and Practice

What would happen if you sat down to dinner with the likes of Alicia Keyes, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Lynch, Morgan Freeman, Sir Ben Kingsley, Alton Brown, Neil Gaiman, Deepak Chopra and David Foster Wallace? Fascinating conversation, without doubt, and one of the things that all these folks have in common is that they practice gratitude and have a lot to say about it. These thinkers and luminaries included in The Grateful Table make this a thoroughly modern book of blessings, both heartfelt and deeply profound.

Saying grace is one of our loveliest traditions and one that has stood the test of time for good reason - it simply feels wonderful. Whether holding hands and praying to the heavens above or waxing poetic about the bounty of food, these blessings turn any group of people into family, connected by the power of gratitude. Compiled by the editor of and collaborator on the runaway bestseller Attitudes of Gratitude, Brenda Knight has employed the practice of gratitude for years. The Grateful Table is not your grandmother's book of graces. Filled with fresh voices and contemporary expressions, this book of blessings will make every occasion more meaningful.

Brenda Knight is the author of Women Who Love Books Too Much and Women of the Beat Generation, winner of an American Book Award. A scholar of medieval literature and modern poetry, she lives in San Francisco, California.
