Generous, erudite, optimistic and candid … Hugh Mackay knows how to bring out the best in ourselves and in our society, in both good and troubled times.
To quote from the book’s opening chapter: ‘To be kind – always and to everyone – is to be fully, gloriously human, and every act of kindness is one more step towards a better society.’ This is not just the launch of a book; it is a call for a revolution.
Hugh Mackay is a social psychologist, and the author of twenty-two books, including eight novels. His non-fiction writing covers social analysis, psychology, communication and ethics. He is currently an honorary professor in the Research School of Psychology at the Australian National University.
