    An Invitation to Become Part of The Phenomenon of Giving

    Once in a while, you read a book that you feel everyone could benefit from. The Power of Giving is such a book. Given the world's current economic condition brought on by the power of the greed of mental, emotional and spiritual midgets, executives and sociopaths who live without regard for others or any connection to their hearts or the whole (in other words wounded souls), the need for more giving and compassion in this world may be at its zenith. The Power of Giving just might be the long awaited catalyst to a more loving world.

    As the editor of New Paradigm Digest, I read hundreds of books each year that help elevate, inspire and empower. Few have the power to support and accelerate a social movement away from greed and toward a more caring world that works for everyone. The Power of Giving just might accomplish that with your help and, by following its simple suggestions, you will not only feel better, you may actually become a better person.

    Perhaps this is why the book has moved from 122,000 yesterday to 171 so far today and hopefully to its deserved spot at number one during the next 24 hours

    If you are a giving person, this book will support you in giving a bit more and reaping the benefits. If you know people who are greedy, stingy or afraid to give for some reason, think about buying a copy for them. Your Congressional representatives and Senators might be inspired to live up to a higher standard and appreciate receiving a copy from you as would your friends and business associates. And how about donating copies to your school or college libraries and sharing the book's ideas with your children. Who can't benefit from being a more giving person?

    Think you might not like the book for some reason? The authors offer a 100% money back guarantee that no one has taken them up on yet and are not likely to in my opinion. And, you'll receive lots of great gifts with your purchase and get to choose which charities receive 100% of the authors royalties.

    This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the world and feel great about doing so while lifting others. Perhaps you've heard of "helper's high", a feeling of joy and elation that many people feel when they make someone else happy. Another potential benefit from purchasing and applying The Power of Giving in your life.

    And, at $11, The Power of Giving is a real bargain. Please join me in helping to make this book #1 in the next 24 hours. In this way, you can give giving and receive its many benefits at the same time.

    Thank you for playing your part in helping make giving the way it is rather than a momentary idea.

    Inspirational!

    What an amazing book! Even though it's obvious that giving is an essential part of our societal development, this book explains how best to give so that you may have the greatest impact. It holds a message important for everyone. This book will change the world!
