Collateral Kindness is an amazing book about the author, Paul Holton, and his experience in Iraq, in which he helped hundreds of Iraqi children by giving them toys. He writes about how he always used kindness to do his work. Whether it be getting information from an ex-Iraqi soldier, or making a kid's day happier, he always used kindness. This story sheds light on Iraq from a different point of view, in which it shows the better side, while the media only showed the dark side, or death and ...more

I love reading about Paul Holton, aka Chief Wiggles. What a great example of showing kindness in even the toughest of situations. Serving others truly helps us forget about ourselves. What a great example of a true American soldier!
Quote: we can make a difference in another persons life in any situation we find ourselves in, sometimes by the most seemingly insignificant acts of kindness.
It was not our vision, but His, that we were pursuing.

This is a true story of Paul’s experiences in Iraq as an army interrogator. How he made life bearable while dealing with a world of torture, deceit, power and lies. There are a lot of good people in Iraq, who were trying to survive the regime of Saddam Hussein. Paul started the non profit organization, Operation Give while in Iraq, this gave hope to hundreds of suppressed Iraqis’.

Lots of interesting information and a unique perspective about the opening of the Iraq War. However, the book tended to jump around a lot and it could have used more editing to streamline it so the storyline flowed better.

Such a great story of good things coming from the brave and courageous soldiers serving our country.

I loved the cover picture - it really says it all.

Thank you, Mr. Holton, for sharing this with us.

The author did great things in Iraq, but the book lacks power.
