This Wall Street Journal Bestseller, USA Today Bestseller and Canadian Book Club Award Winner is filled with true stories about how one small deed can make a world of difference. "Elegant and wise" (Deepak Chopra) "The most uplifting and life-affirming book in years" (Forbes)

Brad Aronson's life changed in an instant when his wife, Mia, was diagnosed with leukemia. After her diagnosis, Brad spent most of the next two and a half years either by her side as she received treatment or trying to shield their five-year-old son, Jack, from the worst of Mia's illness. Amid the stress and despair of waiting for the treatment to work, Brad and Mia were met by an outpouring of kindness from friends, family, and even complete strangers.

Inspired by the many demonstrations of "humankindness" that supported their family through Mia's recovery, Brad began writing about the people who rescued his family from that dark time, often with the smallest of gestures. But he didn't stop there. Knowing that simple acts of kindness transform lives across the globe every day, he sought out these stories and shares the best ones here.

In HumanKind, you'll meet the mentor who changed a child's life with a single lesson in shoe tying that has had a ripple effect on thousands of lives, the six-year-old who launched a global kindness movement, the band of seamstress grandmas who mend clothes for homeless people, and many other heroes.

Brad also provides dozens of ways to make a difference through the simplest words and deeds. You'll discover how a seemingly small act can change someone's world, as well as your own.

HumanKind will leave you grateful for what you have and provide a refuge from the negativity around us. This feel-good book will touch your heart. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be reminded of what really matters.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
