A life-changing book that shows kids it's cool to be kind.

A gloriously illustrated celebration of heroes who have changed the world with kindness and compassion, from David Attenborough to Nelson Mandela, Oskar Schindler to Usain Bolt.

What if we celebrated boys for their kindness as well their strength? For their generosity as well as their success? For their loyal friends

I think it's so important that we give boys role models other than sports stars, actors and typical macho heros to look up to and aspire to be. I hope to bring my little boy up to be kind and to understand the importance of doing good and look forward to reading some of these stories with him as he gets older. ...more

In all honesty, my initial reaction to this book involved a bit of eye-rolling. 'Sure' I thought. 'We need MORE books about the great deeds of men in the past.' But I liked the illustration style, it was a short read, and I wanted to learn something new about history so I requested it anyway. I'm actually a little bit glad I did! It certainly did what it said on the tin, and that was a little aggravating. I'd heard of MOST of the people talked about in this book and it was very male-orientated. ...more

The Good Guys by Rob Kemp and Paul Blow does exactly what its title suggests, introducing 50 famous men who have changed the world through acts of philanthropy, engineering, protest, and more. Each guy gets a one-page bio and an illustrated portrait—pretty standard in these types of books—and the bios themselves are short and sweet, however, this doesn’t mean they’re scant on details. Each of the bios is carefully compiled so as to allow lots of information about each man and his deeds to be inc ...more

Надзвичайно круті історії. Багато фактів з біографії цих чоловіків, які роблять добро, ніколи не чула. У книзі є також і. Представники України.
Цікаво буде всім. Читати обов’язково!

Є книги які не просто приємно читати, а щей приємно тримати в руках. І це той самий випадок, коли ти просто кайфуєш від дизайну, змісту та ілюстрацій.

Навіть дочка не залишилась байдужою, а підсідала до мене і ми читали її разом розділяючи абзаци пополам... ну майже пополам.

Читаючи, ми дізналися про багатьох нових і поглянули по новому на відомих.

P.S. хоча є і ложка дьогтю... у вигляді такої ніжної пропаганди.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is without a doubt the most beautiful book I have read in such a long time - both illustrated and stories. Some true heroes we know and many I didn't but glad I know do! The book makes a point of how people (in this one, specifically men) aren't celebrated for kindness but rather power or influences. Kindness is not celebrated enough!

This book is shouting about people who have made the world
