The Book of Kindness is really a survival manual. If we are to survive, greater kindness toward each other, the earth, and all its creatures is not only optional but mandatory. Dont just read these wise messages, become them.

— Larry Dossey, M.D. (The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things)

"Bound to become a classic in the genre of inspirational works, this book would be a wonderful gift or just be great to keep close at hand when you need to be reminded of the healing power of kindness."

— Science of Mind magazine
