"An elegant, wise book of love in action." (Deepak Chopra)
"HumanKind has never been more timely." (People)
“The most uplifting and life-affirming book in years.” (Forbes)
This national best seller is filled with true stories about how one small deed can make a world of difference. HumanKind is the uplifting, life-affirming book that we all need right now — a reminder of what’s right in the world at a time when so much seems to be wrong.
Inspired by the many demonstrations of "humankindness" that supported Brad Aronson’s family through wife Mia's treatment and recovery from leukemia, he begins by talking about the people who rescued his family from that dark time, often with the smallest of gestures. But that’s only the beginning. Knowing that simple acts of kindness transform lives across the globe every day, he sought out these stories and shares some of the best ones here.
In HumanKind, you'll meet the mentor who changed a child's life with a single lesson in shoe tying that has had a ripple effect on thousands of lives, the six-year-old whose idea launched a global kindness movement, the band of seamstress grandmas who mend clothes for homeless people, and many other heroes.
Brad also provides dozens of ways you can make a difference through the simplest words and deeds, showing how each of us has the power to change someone's world as well as our own.
HumanKind will touch your heart, leaving you grateful for what you have and providing a refuge from the negativity that surrounds us. Listen to one of these stories anytime your spirit needs a lift.
