Sunday Book Review : The Power of Kindness by Piero Ferrucci

The Power of Kindness: The Unexpected Benefits of Leading a Compassionate LifeThe Power of Kindness: The Unexpected Benefits of Leading a Compassionate Life by Piero Ferrucci

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ferrucci distinguishes this pure kindness from self-interested politeness, calculated generosity, superficial etiquette, and kindness against one’s will. He gets into honesty, warmth, forgiveness, contact, sense of belonging, trust, mindfulness, empathy, humility, patience, generosity, respect, flexibility, memory, loyalty, gratitude, service and joy as aspects powering kindness.

From his experience as a psychiatrist he posits kind people are healthier and live longer, are more popular and productive, have greater success in business, and are happier than others…they are destined to live a much more interesting and fulfilling life than those who lack this quality. They are much better equipped to face life in all its savage unpredictability and frightening precariousness.

If you are seeking compassion and want to grow in this arena, this one is for you.
