Reviews - What do customers think about The Good Deed Guide?

Uncover the real world and rediscover what really matters  Sep 30, 2006
I'm in my mid 30s and felt this book was aimed at the general public, not just kids. As I read this, I realized how much I had either never bothered to learn or was too busy in the business world to bother. This made me step back and reassess where I was spending my energies in career versus community. A very good book.
Feel Better Fast  Oct 9, 2003
A non-comprehensive but very useful guide, and initially I thought mostly aimed at children, or at least adults helping children learn the skills behind the good deeds. The only thing missing here is the glaringly absent thank-you owed to Boy and Girl Scouting, as keepers of the Good Deed flame.

But beyond that, it's all in the introduction - what a gift to receive the reminder in our cold, cynical world that good deeds are truly the way to make a difference. It's a simple message, but a profound one to the individual now. Even skilled adults will learn a thing or two as the authors encourage letting our good deed reach exceed our grasp.

Divided into four sections (first aid, friends and neighbors, strangers, and community), the randomish selection of good deeds plumb skill levels from the elementary (making chicken soup for a sick friend) to the truly friendship-as-art (helping a friend quit smoking or comforting a grieving friend).

A sure-fire balm for the urban cynic (highly recommended post-election for Californians).
