Overview

What does it take to feel hopeful and inspired in uncertain times?

No matter where we turn, we hear stories about how bad it is “out there.” Linda Commito’s Love Is the New Currency is a book about how good it is “in here” ­— inside the circle of love, compassion, and human connection that is created when we open our hearts to each other. Commito has been on a passionate quest for three years to document stories of people who are making positive changes in simple, yet extraordinary ways. In this book, she explores what everyday people are finding hopeful in their lives and what they are doing to create it.

The sixty-six stories in Love is the New Currency call us to envision what’s possible by shifting our perceptions about money, values, and what it truly means to be wealthy. Regardless of circumstances, we can each make a difference in the world as we discover our own currency of love and share it with others. Such wealth can never be taken from us and increases in value the more it is given away. We may find that we are richer than we ever could have imagined.

Linda’s passion for connecting people was integral to the success of her businesses:
Commito and Company, a wholesale manufacturer’s representative firm, specializing in high quality home accessories and gift lines, brought together committed sales reps with innovative retailers and interior designers in the Rocky Mountain states. Fifteen years later, Linda sold that company, which continues to do well.
She then created and facilitated CommitoConnections, a supportive, interactive, and enriching community for successful women business owners, for more than seven years.

    So many reasons to read this book!

    Even with all the fearful stories that are out there, and as cynical as I can get, every time I read this book, I feel hopeful! The stories renew my faith in humans as kind, caring, compassionate beings. You can buy the book to feel good; you can buy the book to feel inspired; you can buy the book to feel hopeful. You can buy it to have on hand for a pick-me-up on a bad day. You can buy it to read a story-a-day; to read first thing in the morning or the last thing at night. "Love Is the New Currency" is a handbook for creating a world in which love and caring for our fellow humans is more important than money, power, or any of those other things we think we need.

    A Most Worthy Read...

    Love Is the New Currency... a beautifully written, uplifting book of human experiences sure to make your heart expand. Linda Commito has artfully woven the experiences of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. The rippling effect of these 'do good' stories will continue for years to come. During and after reading this uplifting book I was left with a bubble over my head... what's my mission, what type of legacy would I like to leave behind, have I stretched my heart enough in this lifetime, and where is the next opportunity to give of myself.

    What the world needs now!

    I just finished reading "Love is the New Currency" and I can't stop smiling. It's not only timely, but about time someone wrote a feel good book that touts the abundance of generosity and caring that overflows throughout this fabulous book!
    The author, Linda Commito, has compiled one amazing story after another about ordinary people doing extraordinary acts of unselfish and until now, unsung deeds of kindness to and for one another in an effort to make a difference in these challenging times. Author Commito spins a magnificent web of inspiration and incites the reader to jump in with their own creative ways to make a difference.
    I love, love, love this book and highly recommend it as a gift to your family and friends, but certainly a gift to yourself.
    Brilliantly inspirational and so well written.
    "Love is the New Currency" is destined to become a 21st century classic!

    I continue to read Love Is the New Currency by Linda Commito; I'

    I continue to read Love Is the New Currency by Linda Commito; I'm
    impressed with how easily it flows from one moment to the next, from one
    story to another. So clearly written and accessible, it moves with an
    energy that is unmistakably from the heart. I feel uplifted as I read
    these stories, and I'm sure that's a common experience of others who
    read them. There's obviously a transformative power in this book.
    (Oprah, are you listening?) What a wonderful antidote to Network News
    and other aspects of our current culture, not that this book needs to be
    an antidote to anything - it's naturally healing in its own right.
