More than simply thought-provoking, this book challenges and inspires the reader to effect change through kindness. In warm and engaging prose, the book explains true kindness as opposed to mere niceness and explores its power and benefits. It motivates individuals to exhibit and practice kindness, describing in clear and simple terms ways to integrate kindness as the response of choice. Included are techniques for developing the ability to empathise with others and strategies for being kind to oneself.
