The kindness we owe one another goes far beyond the everyday gestures of feeding someone else’s parking meter–although it’s important not to downplay those small acts. Kindness can also mean much more. In this timely, insightful guide, Henry James Garrett lays out the case for developing a strong, courageous, moral kindness, one that will help you fight cruelty and make the world a more empathetic place.

So, how could a book possibly make you kinder? It would need to answer two questions:

• Why are you kind at all? and,
• Why aren’t you kinder?

In these pages, building on his academic studies in metaethics and using his signature-sweet animal cartoons, Henry James Garrett sets out to do just that, exploring the sources and the limitations of human empathy and the many ways, big and small, that we can work toward being our best and kindest selves for the people around us and the society we need to build.

Henry James Garrett: “Hi, I’m Henry James Garrett and I write and draw cartoons in which anthropomorphised animals and objects say amusing and/or insightful things to one another (usually on political themes). Before this, I was doing a PhD in Philosophy (on  empathy and metaethics). But I dropped out due to anxiety. Since then, I’ve written, and illustrated an op-ed for The New York Times, created alternative Valentine’s cards for The Fawcett Society, provided a feminist drawing of Meghan Markle’s dog as a gift for her, cartooned for The i Newspaper, Buzzfeed, and London Pride, had solo exhibitions in London and a beautiful phonebox in Brighton, and built a beautiful generous following of incredible humans.”
