Item Description...
Citing a global phenomenon of impersonal human relations and materialism, a respected transpersonal psychologist argues that individual happiness can occur only through acts of kindness, in a resource that explores eighteen expressions of kindness while demonstrating how kind people are the most likely to survive and thrive in a hostile world. By the author of What We May Be. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
"A book after my own heart "--His Holiness The Dalai Lama
"The Power of Kindness" is a stirring examination of a simple but profound concept. Piero Ferrucci, one of the world's most respected transpersonal psychologists, explores the many surprising facets of kindness and argues that it is this trait that will not only lead to our own individual happiness and the happiness of those around us, but will guide us in a world that has become cold, anxious, difficult, and frightening.
Piero Ferrucci warns against the dangers of "global cooling." As the pace of living grows faster and the impact of new technologies more insistent, communications become hurried and impersonal. The drive for profit overrides the heart. Warmth and genuine presence fade.
In eighteen interlocking chapters, Dr. Ferrucci reveals that the kindest people are the most likely to thrive, to enable others to thrive, and to slowly but steadily turn our world away from violence, self-centeredness, and narcissism- and toward love. Writing with a rare combination of sensitivity and intellectual depth, Dr. Ferrucci shows that, ultimately, kindness is not a luxury in our world but rather a necessity for us all.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I want everyone to read this book!!!  Nov 23, 2008
This is a truly life changing book. Mr Ferrucci writes in a down to earth non-psycho-babble way and really hit home So good that I've given 8 books to friends and they all sing praises for this book. "The Power of Kindness" is an absolute must read.
For Your Kind Attention  Nov 7, 2008
This is a long homily about the goodness of being nice. It is a simple down-to-earth book about qualities that are associated with nice people - honesty, warmth, forgiveness, trust, humility, patience, generosity, gratitude, respect, loyalty, empathy, and service. Each chapter is filled with short stories, some just a paragraph long. Even though the author occasionally retold stories that involved God to demonstrate the importance of being kind-hearted, his God was a universal god, not a specific, personal god. The central theme was the kind hearted man. The rest were illustrations. This book will, I suspect, be particularly useful to nice, kindly people who had been distracted by the cares of the world and momentarily forgotten their true, kind selves. This book will serve as a reminder them. It may also inspire those of us who wish to re-examine our lives without having to join an organised religion, or a philosophers' club.
The best book on happiness  Nov 2, 2008
This is an amazing little book. I have read 12-15 books about happiness by the most recognized authors (Seligman, Haidt etc.), but this is the the best one. I fully agree with all the other positive reviews. Of course, this book is basically about kindness, but it shows that everything good is related to it. And then, everything good is related to happiness. I particularly like the style of Ferrucci, it is modest without boasting and great promises. He also respects the findings of religions and does not pretend to invent the wheel again. Thanks, Piero Ferrucci!
It's exactly what you are looking for  Jul 30, 2008
The fact that you have looked up this book and are reading the reviews is an excellent sign that you are ready for this book. My challenge is to share my feeling that this is a "wonderful" and "you must read this" book without sounding like another boring cliche. So how can I say this without saying it?
For me, this book came into my life at just the right time and the right place. It is not a book that just tells you what you already know i.e. that kindness is a good thing and can be fun. However it does remind you of what you already know, but it is written in a way that you feel you are with the author in person and engaged in a deeply meaningful and heart-warming conversation. The feeling is one of peace and a sense of naturalness that "of course this way is so obvious" - no effort, no pushing anything, but just allowing what is within us all to gently emerge from under the layers of life that strangle us all.
If I am not explaining myself well, ignore the above and just go and buy the book - it's wonderful and a "must read."
outstanding and inspirational  Jul 22, 2008
i bought this book on a whim. i've read scores of books on emotional control and living up to our potential. this book, as it turns out, is quite practical for those of us who are more, ummm, error prone. it describes, generally, research findings without bogging the reader down in scholarly details. it offers a smattering of stories from various religious traditions that offer examples for us to emulate. written in the tradition of the late, great leo buscaglia, of LOVE fame, this turns out to be one of those half-dozen books that i now keep by my bedside, re-reading a few pages at night or in the morning, to help me to focus on those things that really are the most important things in life. he writes in a fashion that editors like, that pull in the reader, and he not just disseminates lots of facts, but, he inspires us toward acting in a way that propels us to achieve many of our goals. this turns out to be one of the better books that i have read on the topic of emotions and transpersonal psychology. it is highly recommended reading, not just for individuals, but, i wonder, couples, families, or small groups, such as church study groups.
