The Five Side Effects of Kindness: This Book Will Make You Feel Better, Be Happier & Live Longer (Paperback)Dr David R. Hamilton, PhD (author)
Despite what you might have been told, we're not inherently selfish. The truth is we're inherently kind.
Scientific evidence has proven that kindness changes the brain, impacts the heart and immune system, is an antidote to depression and even slows the ageing process. We're actually genetically wired to be kind. In The Five Side Effects of Kindness, David Hamilton shows that the effects of kindness are felt daily throughout our nervous system. When we're kind we feel happier and our bodies are healthiest.
In his down-to-earth and accessible style, David shares how:
* Kindness makes us happier
* Kindness is good for the heart
* Kindness slows ageing
* Kindness improves relationships
* Kindness is contagious

'A beautiful, heart-opening reminder of the importance of kindness at every level.'
Bronnie Ware, author of The Top Five Regrets of the Dying
'I have always felt that kindness is love made visible. As this encouraging book from David Hamilton points out, it also slows ageing, improves heart health and is kind of contagious as well!'
Michael Neill, bestselling author of The Inside-Out Revolution and The Space Within
'I LOVE David Hamilton. And anyone (even if it was Darth Vader) who writes about kindness gets my endorsement, my kudos, and my first-born child. Just kidding about the first-born child, but I do want to encourage anyone who might listen to me (the three of you) to GET THIS BOOK! And be kind. Always. And forever.'
Pam Grout, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 18 books, including E-Squared, E-Cubed and Thank & Grow Rich
'This book is an act of kindness! It's packed full of practical, inspirational and scientifically proven techniques for how to bring more kindness into our lives, and it makes you want to go and be kind!'
Charlie Morley, author of Dreams of Awakening
'This is the book for you if you've ever wished for an easier life. David has a way of making the complex very simple and profound obvious. I had so many aha moments while reading this book and I'm absolutely sure you will too. Do yourself the greatest kindness and open these pages as you open your mind, while you allow David to gently open your heart to a whole world of possibilities and the life you truly deserve.'
Ali Campbell, author of Just Get on With it! and More Than Just Sex
'If you think this is a whimsical book on kindness, please think again. David Hamilton wouldn't create a book of sugar-coated fluff, even though he's an expert on placebos! No one on this planet has researched the mind-body connection in the way David has. He lives it and he embodies it! His last book, I Heart Me, took us on a journey of 'Self-love'; this book is about 'Social-love' and the brilliant side effects kindness has on our own wellbeing. David shows you that kindness is far from being whimsical - it's powerful. It will improve your life and your world.'
Becky Walsh, author, broadcaster and TV Presenter
'Kindness is an electrical spark of life that runs through all kingdoms and has a reciprocal action when shown to others. David has a remarkable capacity to write from the heart, from his own experiences, which, when combined with scientific evidence, makes this book truly unique. As science shows, physical changes occur in the brain when kindness is expressed. David explains how this kindness can be used to overcome stress, anxiety and depression, and strengthening the heart. In my opinion, this book would make a fascinating and enlightening read for all ages. I found it a real treasure of insight and practical application.'
