Publisher's Summary

Despite what you might have been told, we're not inherently selfish. The truth is we're inherently kind. Scientific evidence has proven that kindness changes the brain, impacts the heart and immune system, is an antidote to depression, and even slows the aging process. We're actually genetically wired to be kind.
In The Five Side Effects of Kindness, David Hamilton shows that the effects of kindness are felt daily throughout our nervous system. When we're kind we feel happier, and our bodies are healthiest. In his down-to-earth and accessible style, David shares how:



Kindness makes us happier
Kindness is good for the heart
Kindness slows aging
Kindness improves relationships
Kindness is contagious

A MUST read for every person on the planet.

Besides the delightful accent of Dr Hamilton, the stories and examples, suggestions are so inspiring, I have planned to re-read (listen to) a chapter a day for the rest of the year! Thank you Dr Hamilton!!!
