About the Author

"This book was a much-needed gift to my weary and news-battered heart. In a time when we are constantly being told that we are more divided and combative than ever, and that the future will bring only more calamity and despair, Chris Anderson presents an inspiring body of evidence to support the tremendous and transformative power of generosity--that most beautiful of human impulses. Infectious Generosity is a combination of inarguable data and incredibly moving stories. How wonderful to learn that seemingly small and humble acts of kindness can create exponential whirlwinds of benevolent impact, and that generosity is just as contagious as any virus! I flew through these pages with an increasing sense of joy, and was left inspired and hopeful."--Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love

"Profound and compelling . . . This book is a masterpiece, and an important one. I want everyone I know to read this--and everyone I don't know, too."--Andrew Solomon, author and speaker on culture and psychology

"Truly inspiring! . . . This book is the first page-turner ever written about human generosity. It will change the way you see the world around you."--Elizabeth Dunn, social psychologist and expert on the science of happiness

"A beautiful book--lucid, warm, intelligent, and persuasive."--Steven Pinker, author and professor of psychology, Harvard University

"Warning: Reading this book may give you an irresistible urge to get up and take action. This is simply a wonderful book."--Rutger Bregman, bestselling author of Humankind

"An inspiring, timely book about ways to bring out the best in people rather than focusing on the worst . . . a joyful road map away from a polarized, selfish society to the hopeful, humane place where we should be."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
