Why is it that kindness seems so hard to give precisely when it's needed most? With The Kindness Handbook, bestselling author Sharon Salzberg answers this question and more in her practical companion to inspire generosity of the spirit in any life situation.

Just as cruelty can ravage lives and trample hope, kindness can be the quality we choose to steer our lives, teaches Salzberg. Whether you're frustrated that your plane is hours late, a friend is unhappy and you can't seem to help, or you and your partner can't communicate, her gentle guidebook will help you respond to others-and yourself-in a genuinely loving way.

It has been said that kindness is "compassion in action." But kindness is not just about being nice; it's a profound spiritual practice. Here is an important resource for anyone wondering how to cultivate an open heart, empathy, and inner peace-each and every day.

SHARON SALZBERG, a student of Buddhism since 1971, has been leading meditation retreats worldwide since 1974. She is cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society and of The Barre Center for Buddhist Studies. Her books include Lovingkindness (Shambhala, 2008). She lives in New York City and Barre, Massachusetts. For more, visit
