An I Weigh Book Club Pick “I have been a fan of Henry’s work for a long time and I’m excited for more people to see it.” —Jameela Jamil From the creator of Drawings of Dogs, a warmly illustrated and thoughtful examination of empathy and the necessity of being kinder The kindness we owe one another goes far beyond the everyday gestures of feeding someone else's parking meter--although it's important not to downplay those small acts. Kindness can also mean much more. In this timely, 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 at all? 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.

White Noise and Carousels

White Noise and Carousels

Nakpodia invites his reader into a beautiful, almost cinematic universe full of love, pain, heartbreak and anxiety, which he captures with care and courage."--Henry James Garrett, best-selling author of 'This Book Will Make You Kinder'.

Has being in love ever caused you heartbreak and pain? Does beauty present itself with fear and anxiety? Are you scared of love, or perhaps, afraid to love? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, fear not, for you are not alone. If you remember the feeling of boarding a merry-go-round at the funfair as a child, then you'll remember that while we enjoyed the beautiful thrill that comes with the up and down motion of the carousel, the fear of falling off was always lurking, somewhere in the back of our minds. This relationship between the ups and downs of life in the pursuit of love, coupled with the fear that comes with and without its realisation, is the narrative behind White Noise and Carousels. Join Efe Nakpodia on an eventful journey of shifting scenes about love and loss, truth and healing. 'There is a way between fear and desire where timeless emotions bloom and blossom. In fretful thinking, it remains elusive; but within the stunning imagery of the words in this little book of poetry, it is wonderfully and aesthetically revealed.' "Efe Nakpodia's delicately-crafted poetic vignettes are a joy to inhabit, conveying his love of language and deep knowledge of its power. In White Noise and Carousels, these individually stunning snapshots combine to create an atmospheric work greater even than the sum of its parts. Nakpodia invites his reader into a beautiful, almost cinematic universe full of love, pain, heartbreak and anxiety, which he captures with care and courage."--Henry James Garrett, best-selling author of 'This Book Will Make You Kinder'.

Kindness

Kindness

This book helps you internalise the fundamental truth that kindness does not require wealth or possessions, or material giving at all — whatever you have to offer is enough, and it may just change someone’s life.

Rediscover kindness and rediscover your worth Have you ever helped someone out of instinct, because not helping never even occurred to you? Remember how surprised you were at their gratitude? It is easy to feel like kindness and gratitude are becoming rare in the world today, but the truth is that it is all around you — you just need to learn how to see it. Kindness shows you how to do just that, and inspires you to take part with tips, ideas, recommendations and advice. You will learn to see yourself and your surroundings in a kinder, happier way. Kindness is not people-pleasing; people-pleasing comes from a place of anxiety, while kindness is borne out of empathy. Kindness expects no reward or recognition, and is just as beneficial to the giver as the receiver. Kindness can be a grand gesture, or something as simple as a smile. It can be quiet or loud, simple or complex. This book helps you internalise the fundamental truth that kindness does not require wealth or possessions, or material giving at all — whatever you have to offer is enough, and it may just change someone’s life. Learn how to: See the silver lining and take care of yourself in difficult times. Do and say kind things when you're not feeling very kindly. Sustain the warm feelings that come from helping others. Express kindness even when other people are rude or critical. Enjoy self-care and treating yourself. Opportunities to be kind present themselves every day, and here you’ll learn how to notice them. Your self-esteem and confidence will grow as you discover the pure joy of helping others, and you’ll feel more comfortable allowing others to help you. In a world where kindness seems to get lost in the shuffle of worry, anxiety, aggression and worse, Kindness shows you how to bring it back into the light.

'My heart grew, then broke, then mended itself. A wise, funny, brave novel and a story that you will never want to forget.' Favel Parrett An unforgettable story of loneliness, isolation and finding your way. Heart-wrenching, wise and wryly funny, this novel will make you kinder to those who are lost. Miss Kaye works at The Institute. A place for the damaged, the outliers, the not-quite rights. Everyone has different strategies to deal with the residents. Some bark orders. Some negotiate tirelessly. Miss Kaye found that simply being herself was mostly the right thing to do. Susie was seven when she realised she'd had her fill of character building. She'd lie between her Holly Hobbie sheets thinking how slowly birthdays come around, but how quickly change happened. One minute her Dad was saying that the family needed to move back to the city and then, SHAZAM, they were there. Her mum didn't move to the new house with them. And Susie hated going to see her mum at the mind hospital. She never knew who her mum would be. Or who would be there. As the years passed, there were so many things Susie wanted to say but never could. Miss Kaye will teach Susie that the loudness of unsaid things can be music - and together they will learn that living can be more than surviving.
