There are not many books on the market devoted to the subject of awe. The handful that are published focus on either the religious or the scientific aspects of awe. The Awe Factor is different. Its focus is two-fold. The first is to present powerful and inspiring stories that document the presence of awe in all sorts of situations. The second is to encourage the reader to increase the awareness of awe in their own life by providing a toolbox of suggestions, questions and prompts on how to achieve that.


Allen Klein:
Allen Klein, aka “Mr. Jollytologist”®, is no stranger to quotation books. His previous uplifting and motivational books in this genre have sold over 400,000 copies. Add to that another 200,000+ units sold domestically in non-quotation categories and the nine language translations. In addition, the author is the recipient of a number of national awards including both the Best New Book of the Year Award and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor, a Communication and Leadership Award from Toastmasters, as well as being a Hunter College, The City University of New York, Hall of Fame honoree. Through his books, workshops and keynote presentations, the author has devoted over 30 year of his life to encouraging people to lighten up, to embrace a positive attitude, and to take back their power. This book will further that goal and validate what comedian Jerry Lewis said about the author: Allen Klein is “a noble and vital force watching over the human condition.”
