The stories are amazing and yet most of them are powerfully simple. The author cites examples of regular people doing small things to bring hope to others – a police officer caught in the act of giving food to a homeless woman and her dog; a six-year-old boy who earns money through his lemonade stands to purchase wheelchairs for people in need; an aging couple who help each other through significant health challenges.
Inspiring is the bravery and courage of a woman who rises above the brutality and bigotry of tribal customs to become an advocate for woman’s rights in Pakistan.
“Unselfish” is a wonderful reminder of how empowering it is to be unselfish. It will strengthen your faith in humanity and hopefully inspire all who read it “to make life less difficult for each other!”
I can only imagine a world where we all live together in harmony, loving and caring for each other. Reading "Unselfish" gave me greater desire to do good. This is a book that should be in every home, as other reviewers have said.
