The Wish: The 99 Things We Think We Want Most

Bill Griffin

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Self-help & personal development

THE WISH will review 99 of the most popular wishes on website and app, Crowdwish, asking what are the things we really want and why, and offer practical and achievable next steps to help people progress towards their wish.

Just over 1,000 days ago, Bill Griffin launched Crowdwish, a website and app with a single proposition - it simply asked people what the three things were that they thought they wanted most.

Wishes poured in from all over the world, with the site promising to take some form of meaningful action for the most voted-for wish every twenty-four hours.

Wishes that have gained national press attention range from the assisting of a woman who wanted to find a half-decent boyfriend ('just not a dick basically'), duping Katie Hopkins into signing a gagging order and attaching a faux marble plinth to the offices of the Daily Mail.

THE WISH reviews 99 of the site's most popular wishes, and provides practical and achievable next steps to aid the reader in fulfilling their own wishes, as well as offering the unique opportunity for readers to get in touch with Crowdwish for further information or resources to help them reach their goal.

THE WISH is part reflection on a fascinating social experiment, part humorous rumination on the nature of happiness and part instruction manual for life. It is designed to be helpful, entertaining and thought-provoking; a snapshot of the hopes, dreams and desires that unite us all.
