there are some good ideas to try

I loved reading this book. I read it from cover to cover, making notes about some of the things that I had already incorporated into my life and taking notes about other things I could add.  Simple things that you know but don't usually think about.  This book had some exmples that I try to instill in my very kind 19 yr old daughters.  I will be buying them , as well as a few others on my list copies of this book for Christmas.

Read very similar books/ideas before...nothing new or creative, IMO...

A good book, not great, but good. It took me a while to get through it and honestly, I questioned some of the "good deeds". But it does make you more aware of others around you and that is worth a lot!

I ordered 10 copies of this for friends for Christmas. It is funny and inspiring, and can be read fast or slow. One takeaway is that - if you want to do a good deed every day - you have to be on the lookout for an opportunity. You'll be surprised. Possible good deeds just don't jump in front of you: you have to actively look.

I wasn't sure what this was going to be, but the preview sounded interesting and, frankly, it was a free NOOK book. I found that I couldn't put it down because everything in it is just so relatable. I've also found that I'm paying more attention to things, too: on the way home from work the other day, I saw an elderly woman raking her lawn and it looked like she could have used some help. I'll be honest and say that I didn't pull over and offer, but I think recognizing that there are other people in the world is just as important, too. Just a little while ago, I sent two separate emails to former teachers and mentors. I haven't heats from either of them in a few months so I just told them I wanted to say hello and hoped the school year was going well. I've been looking for volunteer opportunities anyway, but I'm going to check out a couple that Erin mentions in the book. I can't really even put it into words, but this was so much more than I thought it would be - thank you!
