Bernadette Russell vowed to be kind to strangers every day for a year, which was the start of a whole new way of life. She tried to find various ways to help others, to be there for them, to encourage them and to make them smile. In The Little Book of Kindness she shares her experiences and gives useful advise to those who want to start a kindness project themselves or just want to make the world a better place by being kinder.

The Little Book of Kindness is a nice quick read filled with invalua

I would recommend dipping in and out of this book and not reading it cover to cover as I did (it can get a bit overwhelming if you do it this way). Nonetheless, I did enjoy reading this book and it has some really nice suggestions. I would have preferred more anecdotes and personal stories.

Tôi đã làm được một số điều được đề cập trong cuốn sách này. Thực sự nó rất nhỏ, nhưng đòi hỏi bạn phải chịu bỏ thời gian, công sức và cái tâm trong đó. Nhưng mọi thứ đều đáng giá.

Thay vì cứ chạy theo số đông, hãy thay đổi một chút, có thể khác người, có thể bản thân đôi khi phải chịu thiệt, nhưng sự tử tế sẽ luôn cho bạn thấy cuộc sống thật ý nghĩa.

This book was wonderful, and had some heart-warming suggestions to encourage more kindness into your life. Chapters cover things like how to be kind to yourself, strangers, those you love, the environment and so on. I came away fully inspired to implement the ideas mentioned and would recommend you give this book a read.

In 2011, Bernadette Russell started a blog called 366 Days of Kindness, detailing her attempt to be kind every day to a stranger — it began as a response to the UK riots that year. The blog became incredibly popular, and Bernadette was inspired to write this Little Book so that other people could read about what she’s learnt and be inspired to spread more kindness in their lives.

This book is as much informative, as it is reflective. Bernadette gives many examples of kind

Too much kindness

Sincerely I can not agree or disagree with Bernadette Russell. Her journey throughput the world of being kind is somehow inspirational. The amount or list of do are far too many and unsustainable. I suppose she refers to the life of being a good Samaritan. I found she has some good ideas. Plenty advice on being kind. However unless you are prepared to change your life over night and become a monk, you would not find the time and the money to performe all these good deeds. I beli

This has some nice ideas about how to make kindness a part of every area of your life, but I think for some things - like approaching strangers on the street with offers of kind deeds - you have to develop a thick skin and prepare to be rudely rejected. Not everyone feels uplifted by ‘random acts of kindness’ and many are mistrustful of strangers bearing gifts, rightly so. Still, there are plenty of good suggestions for kindness to yourself, loved ones and colleagues that I will try to implement ...more

Thoughtful Book

Most makes very good sense but to break away from your busy self to put any into action and keep it up is the challenge. Nevertheless one needs to strive to be more kind to ourselves and others

Xã hội càng hiện đại, con người càng cần những cuốn sách để nhắc nhở họ rằng tử tế với người xung quanh là điều cần thiết, là hãy cho đi rồi sẽ nhận lại, đừng đợi người khác, hãy tốt, hãy cứ tốt, rồi mọi thứ xung quanh cũng sẽ dần tươi sáng hơn mỗi ngày :)

Simple acts of kindness make the world a better place

Lots of sweet suggestions for little ways to make a difference! Bernadette Russell’s writes with compassion and makes a compelling case for us all to start making changes.

Interesting read & I do feel that we all should be kinder to ourselves & each other. I don't that the suggestions are for me although great that there are people out there doing random acts of kindness - just need to work out how to be kinder in my own way. ...more

come spesso accade, questi libri sembrano più autocelebrativi *oh che bella persona che sono* che istruttivi..
