Am I Being Kind? The Question for All of Us
By G. E. Kugler "Ed Kugler - nomoreBS - Author o... - April 1, 2011
I picked this book up because of its title. Personally, I have always wanted to be a kinder person than I am. I had never heard of the Author really so the title did it. The author seems to me to start a little slow. I have to admit that I read a lot and I read self improvement books a lot and always have. So the first half of the book was to me some things that I'd read for a lifetime. Good things, well worth being reminded but wasn't really into the book at that point.
Then when I crossed over to the Authors experiences, his quitting his job to start an Institute on kindness and his very real explanations of kindness in action, I got hooked. It is a great and important book. It outlines exactly how we might put love to action by being kind in all our actions. It is not an unreasonable approach as are many. It is an actionable book. It is important because our world needs this now more than ever.
Ever since I put this book down I cannot get 'am I being kind' out... read more

The Antidote for What's Wrong in the World

It seems like such a simple concept...being kind. Something we're taught as children. Somewhere along the way we lose sight of that. We replace kindness with angry words, rude gestures, incivility, cruelty, violence and then are surprised to be repaid with like actions. Michael Chase's well-written and heartfelt book reminds us that how we treat ourselves, how we treat others, and how we treat the world can be an amazing transforming energy either for ill or good. Inspired by Michael's own experiences growing up in a house filled with anger, substance abuse, depression, and violence, his story is one of breaking the cycle and making a life based on kindness. This is a book everyone should read. It is particularly a must-read for teachers, pastors, child advocates, parents, medical professionals and anyone who wants to impact their own lives and the lives of others in a powerfully positive way. Kindness changes everything.
