Why do some people do good deeds? This book goes to the source. Clinical psychologist Kathleen Brehony set out to interview hundreds of men and women of all ages, creeds, and lifestyles -- ordinary people who have managed to help others in extraordinary ways -- and found that grace is all around us, in profoundly moving experiences and in small, almost imperceptible acts. With rare insight and inspiration, Brehony reminds us that compassion and generosity are qualities available to everyone -- if we are willing to open our eyes and our hearts.
