What the Critics Say

"Azim Jamal and Harvey McKinnon do a remarkable job of addressing the all-important questions: Why give? To whom should I give? What should I give? How can I give? When should I give? With pith and wisdom they make a compelling case for the old adage that the more you give, the more you receive." (Jack Canfield)

    I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite of my short time.

    "Giving to others is powerful"

    Can you give to others part of your time, part of your money or part of your knowledge to help others? The authors argue that you can and have lots of reasons to do so. It is a good book, with scientific researches and real meaning to life. Give it a try.

    "Intellectual Mush"
    Any additional comments?

    If you believe that "there is no Truth," or "we all define our own truth," you may enjoy this book. I had hoped this book would cite some firm numbers or statistics. Rather than demonstrating how giving improves our communities, it instead basically says - for 4 hours - "giving improves your life by improving your attitude." It's a feel-good book, but only just so.

    "ok"

    i struggled listening to this. would have liked more citations and a more academic book but this is a fast, easy read if you just want a non in depth nook on giving.

    "Simple, practical advice"

    I enjoyed the book and the narrator. The information was interesting and well presented without being preachy or demeaning. The stories and examples used were appropriate and inspiring.
