Are you craving all the feel good heartwarming reads these days?
I tend to escape in the thrillers when sh*t hits the fan, because it gives me those “hey, it could be worse!” vibes.
But sometimes, we all need a good tear-inducing story filled with words that wrap you in a warm hug.
This book is bursting with hugs.
“An elegant, wise book of love in action.” — Deepak Chopra

And how you can start your own domino effect of joy.
“Extraordinary Stories.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer
Tiny gestures, to grand displays of compassion and generosity … these things can sometimes fall between the cracks, being overshadowed by bad news and sensationalized media stories. But they are happening. They are shiny rays of light in a world that seems so unjust sometimes, so full of chaos… but this book reminds us they are there. And you can be a part of it.
This book is a delight. It’s guaranteed to plaster a smile on your face and is a great reminder that there are still plenty of kind humans in this world.
There is even a resource section at the back of the book that provides guidance and lists of different organizations that can help inspire your own acts of kindness, such as:
- Fund a surgery to cure someone’s blindness with less than a $200 donation
- Provide a birthday gift for a child who otherwise wouldn’t receive one
- Send letters of encouragement to support hospitalized kids, lonely seniors, refugees, veterans and others
- and more than 50 other ways you can change a life
And even better – all author royalties from the purchase of HumanKind will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

About the book:
HumanKind is the heartwarming feel-good book that we all need right now.
Brad Aronson’s life changed in an instant when his wife, Mia, was diagnosed with leukemia. After her diagnosis, Brad spent most of the next two and a half years either by her side as she received treatment or trying to shield their five-year-old son, Jack, from the worst of Mia’s illness. Amid the stress and despair of waiting for the treatment to work, Brad and Mia were met by an outpouring of kindness from friends, family and even complete strangers.
Inspired by the many demonstrations of “humankindness” that supported their family through Mia’s recovery, Brad began writing about the people who rescued his family from that dark time, often with the smallest of gestures. But he didn’t stop there. Knowing that simple acts of kindness transform lives across the globe every day, he sought out these stories and shares some of the best ones here.
In HumanKind, you’ll meet the mentor who changed a child’s life with a single lesson in shoe tying, the six-year-old who launched a global kindness movement, the band of seamstress grandmothers who mend clothes for homeless people, and many other heroes.
Brad also provides dozens of ways you can make a difference through the simplest words and deeds. You’ll discover how buying someone a meal or sharing a little encouragement at the right time can change someone’s world, as well as your own.
HumanKind will leave you grateful for what you have and provide a refuge from the negativity that surrounds us. This feel-good book will touch your heart. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll be reminded of what really matters.
About the author:
Brad Aronson is a husband and a dad, and when he’s holding the parenting reins, he likes to go all out. For him that means leading an egg drop competition from the third-floor window of his family’s home or heading up indoor games of baseball and hockey, and then having to explain why something else is now in pieces. Luckily, his wife, Mia, is understanding.
Brad loves teaching entrepreneurship to youth in Camden, N.J., and volunteering on the nonprofit boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters and Hopeworks.
One day Brad hopes to be famous for co-founding a national holiday that features a seven-foot-tall orange tree and more than fifty stuffed monkeys (see chapter nine in HumanKind). In the meantime, he works with tech startups and writes books.
