About the Book:
99 inspiring stories of people putting others before themselves.
Everyone is trying to get noticed. Selfies are taking over the internet. We live in a world where success and achievement seem to be determined by how many “likes” or “followers” one has on social media. Selfish behavior seems to be at an all-time high.
But there are people who do Unselfish things everyday. Acts of kindness that no one notices. Extraordinary sacrifices that don't always go viral. This book celebrates just a few of the unsung stories of regular people and celebrities alike going against the grain and helping their fellow man.
I was not sure what to expect with this particular book. My curiosity was sparked, and I had to take a peek. Basically, "Unselfish" is a gorgeous compilation of inspirational stories of sacrifice for our fellow man.
The book is oversized, kind of like a coffee table book. Unlike a coffee table book, this one is meant to be read. To be absorbed. To inspire selflessness in a selfie saturated world. Oh, the irony...when I did a search on Barnes and Noble, I found "Unselfish" next to a new book by Kim Kardashian!
I found most of the 99 stories inspiring, but to be honest, I did skip over a few. "Unselfish" succeeds in promoting selflessness, and demonstrating how we can serve one another and the less fortunate.
My one issue with the book is this: good deeds done apart from God really don't amount to much. In the stories I read, I can't recall Jesus being mentioned once. Which is not to say that the people giving of themselves so sacrificially aren't followers of Jesus.
I just didn't see it. But maybe that was the intent. I'm not sure. But I thought I'd mention it.
My thanks to my friends at BelieversTrust.com for my complimentary copy of "Unselfish" in exchange for an honest review. Personally, I wanted a bit more, but I'd still recommend the book.
