Item description for Kindness and Joy: Expressing the Gentle Love by Harold Koenig...

In this inspirational book, Dr. Harold G. Koenig demonstrates how kindness leads to life-enriching joy. The nature of kindness is explored--its relationship to love and generosity, as well as the characteristics that distinguish it from pity. Kindness is defined as an intentional and selfless kind of gentle love that involves concentrating on the needs of another person. It is the opposite of cruelty and neglect, which ignore the needs of others and focus only on the self. Joy is likewise examined, and Koenig notes how it differs from the emotions of happiness and satisfaction. Its roots are shown to be in human experiences and actions. Stories from everyday life as well as the acts of well-known people illustrate how kindness is expressed. They also show the effects of kindness on the person who is being kind and the recipient of the kindness. While, to date, there is little formal research on kindness, there are studies on the positive impact of values that are related to it, such as forgiveness, altruistic love, and acts of volunteering and compassion. It is likely, Koenig speculates, that kindness will be found to have a positive effect on mental health and even physical health. This book includes guidance as well as information and inspiration. There are practical recommendations on how to perform acts of kindness in personal lives and at work, toward friends, colleagues, and family members-- even with one's enemies. Suggestions are also offered on ways to encourage others to be kind so they, too, can experience the joy that results.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kindness and Joy: Expressing the Gentle Love?

Three Significant Little Words  Mar 9, 2007
I was attracted to this book by its title and subtitle which contain three of my favorite words that are at once very simple but powerful: "kindness, joy, gentle." A lightweight small-format book that can be easily carried with you, its chapters speak simply of what I have learned to be important thoughts for my life. A famous author once said that the three things necessary for a useful and satisfying life are "to be kind, to be kind, to be kind." I agree and am trying to live out that motto. This little book by Harold Koenig is a push and a guide in that direction. Written in accessible words, it is for everyone, and I hope others will read and reread it as I am doing. It would make a wonderful gift for a friend or family member.
