The Politics of Kindness - Hugh Mackay
In current times, with all the challenges of a global pandemic and what that means for us as we navigate work, family, isolation, sickness, and sanity (and in lockdown for some of us), the notion of kindness must be an anecdote for some of that which we struggle with.

His latest book, The Kindness Revolution, was published in 2021.
