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
