This book should be the thought for the day every single day.’ --Dr. Julie Smith, Sunday Times best-selling author of Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before?

‘David’s clear, thorough explanation of recent research on kindness does well to show that far from a weakness, kindness is instead a powerful force from which we all benefit. This understanding is an inspiring platform from which we can make the effort to bring more kindness into our lives.’ --Sharon Salzberg, New York Times best-selling author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness

‘David Hamilton is the King of Kindness – he sets out the case and the science for why caring for others will make us healthier, happier, and bring more joy into the world. Hurray!’ --Suzy Walker, Metro

‘David explains beautifully, in his calming and clear way, how everything I fully believe to be true actually is. He has a way of putting facts into fiction and science into soul food. I use his workings daily to bring backbone and clarification to my own inner musings and beliefs. This book is another must-read if self-growth is your bag.’ --Donna Ashworth, Sunday Times best-selling author of I Wish I Knew

‘I love David’s work, particularly his ongoing campaign to centre kindness as a core societal value, and to elevate its practice to that of a daily tool which has the potential to radically transform the health of our communities. This book teaches that while the effort to drop our defensive postures and choose to be kind is not always easy or straightforward, it doesn’t need to be grand or awe-inspiring to have a great impact. David reminds us that the power of caring lies in its humility and simplicity, which each and every one of us can harness to enjoy the good days and get through the tough ones together.’ --Evanna Lynch, actress and author of The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting

‘Imagine if nine billion people performed one act of kindness a day. We would create a climate change from fear to love in no time at all. The world would be changed and so would you. The Joy of Actually Giving a F*ck is a masterful, how-to guide to help you ‘go kindly’ and make a real difference in the world.’ --Robert Holden, New York Times best-selling author of Shift Happens! and Higher Purpose

‘Kindness is essential for our collective well-being and David’ spractical advice mixed with hard-core science is the perfect blend to inspire more of it! The world needs this book.’ --Jaime Thurston, founder and CEO of 52 Lives

‘A brilliant reflection on how every one of us has the capacity to improve our lives, by taking the responsibility to work on ourselves with all the challenges life brings with it, to be strong and kind with ourselves and the ones around us. David’s ability to line out what we all know in our hearts to be true is second to none: That real trust and respect, supported by small genuine acts, make a huge difference in our personal and professional lives, with one caveat–you really have to mean it. A must-read for any leader who has the courage and strength to embark on a journey to create a competitive business with all the difficult choices that come with it, but is always committed to do it with genuine kindness and respect for their people.’ --Claudio Gienal, senior insurance executive and board member, AXA Europe
