Synopsis: The world's religions affirm it to be so and recent research across a number of disciplines tell us that "Helping others not only benefits those we assist but is good for us as well." The recent and astonishingly generous outpouring of help and donations in response to the earthquake in Haiti is a clear demonstration of this phenomenon, but what if we could be convinced to make helping others a way of life, even when times are hard?

  • Post is author of the widely praised Why Good Things Happen to Good People
  • Filled with inspirational anecdotes about the transformative power of doing good
  • The author is a leader in the study of altruism, compassion, and love as well as the President of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love
  • Beautiful packaging, ideal for gift giving

The Hidden Gifts of Helping Others will leave you with the unshakable feeling that the world is an essentially good place.

From the Back Cover: Praise for The Hidden Gifts of Helping

"Stephen Post has written a deeply moving and comforting book about the pain and the healing of being uprooted. In the face of the deeply troubling post-2008 world, Post has written a courageous and honest book about his own experience of being a 'castaway' and reaching shore safely by trying to rescue others, not himself.  It is wise and profoundly healing."
?George E. Vaillant, M.D., professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; senior fellow, Center for Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania; and author, Aging Well

"I hereby add my voice to the much deserved praise of Stephen G. Post's book on the healing power of love. It is a lasting contribution to the humanities in medicine."
?Richard Selzer, M.D., Yale University School of Medicine

"In this inspiring book, Stephen Post convincingly shows how helping others leads to win-win situations: not only does benevolence enhance others' well-being but, as a bonus, it also contributes significantly to our own physical and mental well-being."
?Matthieu Ricard, Buddhist monk, humanitarian, scientist, and author, Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill

"Stephen Post's new book is an engaging, spiritually wise reflection on the challenge of moving from one place and one job to another. He draws on his expertise in the scientific research on helping, loving, religion, and altruism as he constructs a moving personal narrative with a universal message."
?Sydney Callahan, Ph.D., nationally syndicated columnist for Commonweal magazine; licensed psychologist; and author, Created for Joy: A Christian View of Suffering

"America needs this timely, persuasive, and morally refreshing call to help our neighbors. Once again, Stephen Post offers us the gift of good news that volunteerism, altruism, and philanthropy are forms of therapy for our own souls."
?Rev. Dr. Robert M. Franklin, president, Morehouse College
