Synopsis

From the creator of Drawings of Dogs, a warmly illustrated and thoughtful examination of empathy and the necessity of being kinder

When we talk about becoming kinder, it's not just the everyday kindness of feeding someone else's parking meter--although those small acts are important. But kindness can also mean much more. In this insightful guide, Henry James Garrett lays out the case for developing a strong, courageous, moral kindness, one that will help you fight cruelty and make the world a more empathetic place.

So, how could a book possibly make you kinder? It would need to answer two questions:

  •  Why are you kind? and,
  •  Why aren't you kinder?

In these pages, building on his academic studies in metaethics and using his signature sweet animal cartoons, Henry James Garrett sets out to do just that, exploring the sources and the limitations of human empathy and the many ways, big and small, that we can work toward being our best and kindest selves for the people around us and the society we need to build.
