The Power of Good


In the wake of recent global floods, cyclones and earthquakes, social researcher Mark McCrindle has released a new book, The Power of Good, detailing positive, heart-warming stories of acts of kindness by strangers, with contributions from 70 prominent Australians.

“In a recent survey, 93% felt that media reports give the impression that there is more evil than good in the world… However, the reality is that more good goes on in the world than we are led to believe… for every reported act of road rage, violence or abuse, there are 38 acts of kindness towards strangers,” McCrindle states.
