Excellent & Inspiring! - this book is very much needed in today's world
on 18 February 2010
I am literally "stunned" at the previous one star review. I could go on in detail about how if the title of the book and the blurb about it was read and understood properly, then you wouldn't be expecting answers about what's gone wrong with the world. But I won't go on too much, I am instead going to be kind to the other reviewer, as Dr Hamilton teaches that it is much better for the health of my heart if I show compassion. This book tells us many fascinating things about kindness: how it slows the ageing process, that it's more important than diet when it comes to protecting ourselves from heart disease and hundreds of more unbelievable studies. Dr Hamilton's style of writing is brilliant, very modern and quirky. The list at the end is brilliant. It is a mixture of small and big acts of kindness, which is great, as if you haven't the time to do a huge act of kindness everyday (I don't!), he tells us that just the little things on a regular basis can have a massive effect. I completely believe that if everyone read this book, the world would be a much better, kinder and a more inspirational place.
