Publisher's Summary

Harness the hidden power of kindness.

Kindness isn’t merely about getting along with people and being nice. It’s a game changer in business, the door opener to opportunity, and the key to authenticity and confidence. It’s a superpower that can be honed through an intentional lifestyle of kindness and is especially important in these divisive times. 

Can something as simple as kindness really be the answer?

Through years of developing her own kindness practices and studying those of others, Good Morning America correspondent and anchor Adrienne Bankert has experienced firsthand the unbeatable power of kindness and witnessed its transformative impact on others.  

Adjusting our perspective from being closed off and self-centered to a mindset of kindness ripples into a staggering amount of personal fulfillment and growth. No matter our age or ethnicity, where we come from, or how much money we make, every one of us can be kind. Every one of us can be a change agent.

Your Hidden Superpower will help you: 

  • See simple acts of kindness from a new and empowering perspective;
  • Learn how to make kindness a habit and experience more peace, inspiration, and impact;
  • Engage kindness at work and enjoy remarkable opportunities - plus, know how to get from “here” to “there” quickly; 
  • Activate kindness as a force to reconnect you to your authentic self, replenish your passion and creativity, and find your voice.

Great content . Thought provoking. A MUST READ !!!

This girl is from Fort Worth yall. I don't care what she says. 😊 I follow her on social media 😎

When it comes to dealing with and working with other guys/men, I certainly have my own views on kindness, but this is definitely another perspective to look at. Been an admirer of Adrienne since she came to Texas. She carries a light from within and is a great role model for women of color to look up to .

A Great Reminder of a Superpower We All Possess!

This is a great book by a very affable person. I have had the pleasure of meeting her when she was in Sacramento and I can assure you this persona in the book is exactly as who she is. I enjoyed this book immensely and I highly recommend to all people who seek to tap into their inner self and pull out a kinder being. I know I will be.

I am Kind

Highly recommend this book. She gives Golden advice that I wish I would have learned growing up. Her book helped me deal with a a problem at work and improve the quality of my relationships. I got the Audiobook and I think I’ll get the hardcover book because I don’t want to forget or miss any golden nuggets. This book came to me at the perfect time when I needed it the most in my life. The author is phenomenal in her book and during a book interview that I got to see virtually. She is a genuine and kind.

I wish you my mentor when I was two years-old

Category: Ethics & Anti-PC

Dear Adrienne👸🏼

Your love letter quilled a giant gooseblood stain in Chapter 4. It had categorized me to a cross from which I have to follow. From the four chapters I've read, this one is so potent rhat I have had several outtakes on it since the five hundred twenty-first second onward.

You speak of the many salacious, or inappropriate intimate contacts I attract or with which I debase myself, even in family matters. You see, Adrienne, I can be well-hated for Doc Martin approaches to asking for or fulfilling needs. Sometimes I let being overly self-righteous subject me to insults and anti-Trumpist rants about me. Though I know the fmr president had oftentimes devalued many opinions with misogynistic and racial epithets, which I find irrelevant, he trusted himself and many others that his anger in not getting what he wanted done.

It's not the bigotry that I wanted to influence you on, but more the confidence in you to fight for kindness through choice of when and what to speak in everyday situations. Sometimes it's not out of an inhibiting fear that some blatantly truespeak condescendingly to others, but to judge on life experience altering traumas that were impacted by the subject conjectured to other individual instances.

But if being you means foregoing these blunt gestures in other ways than smiling, then reinforce something mutually positive that you all can agree on. That roncom-ness about you plays an important role in others development.

I guess why we see less of you on the Disney/abc network, is because they have rightfully promoted you. I do not watch much TV, but when I turn to Abc, I don't see your on the street or coanchoring reporting. I would like for you to do what the rival Dateline NBC show does to interview powerplayers in Jesus' life. I urge you to do more reports of stories that takes place in consequential hotspots, like Africa, Latin America, Israel and the fmr Russian republics. The stories which impact females from a master standard and an ethnocentrist scope which empowers social change are revelations that the American public rarely gets in their media diet intake. I would love you so that I could love others if you took on that challenge. I encourage you to rewatch the Tribulation Hour trilogy to think of what times we are currently in, and which character(s) you remind me of.

You can edit media circulation, emanate on-the-scene reporting, and effectuate change from coanchoring as you continually do. But do not forget to be a mother to all those who watch you with kindness.

What being kind truly looks like.

This is the best book I’ve ever read. Honestly. This is not a self help book, it is one journalist’s explanation of what it means to be kind.
I’ve been saying in 2020, just do the next right thing (-Mr Rogers I think) After reading her book, she has put into words my intention of that phrase.

I’m going to become more kind. More kind to others, more kind the world around me and mostly, more kind to myself.

A top of the bucket list book to have AND read!

If you are human, if you can breath, than this is a must read book. I consider myself a nice person but now my eyes are open. Adrienne "AB" Bankert has given me so much to consider and actions to take. Looking forward to reading a second and third time. Thank you.

Be kind

That sums it up, more of a personal story from the author about how kind they are. Not much to take away other than to be kind.

What the world needs now

In a world of chaos, disruption, discord, tribal lines, and a lack of compassion or understanding of others, this book and Adrienne’s voice is exactly the remedy we need. She speaks about leaving behind a kindness legacy, to consider even the smallest actions not just the big, and she perfectly describes the difference between kindness and being “nice”, and how to avoid the trap of being walked all over by those who aren’t able to see kindness as the strength it is, and not a weakness. I’ve actually experienced Adrienne’s kindness in person. We met by chance in a Beverly Hills nail salon, when I was having my nails done to sing at the 2020 Oscar ceremony as Norwegian Elsa in Frozen, and she was having hers done to report on the Oscars. She helped me relax and put me at ease about the pressure of the show, and that I deserved to be there on that stage. I’ll always be so grateful to her. And by the way, she’s absolutely breathtaking in person as well as on audible.
And now with lockdown and a changed world, and acting and singing in public is pretty much on hold, this book was exactly what I needed at this time. It’s so easy to become naval gazing and self pitying, instead of looking up and seeing what good we can bring to others, which in turn makes us feel more hopeful and opens up doors and connections we hadn’t thought of. I know for sure that the times I’ve switched off my ego and shown kindness to others, it has always come back around with kindnesses in return by someone. The old saying is true, “one good turn deserves another”, but we can change it to “One kindness deserves another”.
I’d recommend this book to anyone wishing to elevate and lead with love and compassion, who’d like to leave the world a kinder place than you found it, who thrive when in a positive environment and who’d like to create that for others. My goal is definitely to leave behind my own kindness legacy. Thank you Adrienne!
