My Review
One day, not too long ago, I had the opportunity to just sit and watch people. I had many, many things to do and many, many books to review...but I decided to take this moment to be in the share with those around me. It was there that I firmly decided that the final judgement will not be so much about what we did, but how we treated other people.

This book shows just that! 

Amazing examples of love and service!

Beautiful stories of helping another without having to take a "selfie" in doing so.

Each story is only a few paragraphs making it easy to pick up, read a little, put down, pick up, read a little more...although once you start reading it won't be easy to put down :)

And the messages will stay with you for a very long time!

Your heart will be touched!

"The key is to act--do something,  just like the people in this book. 
It requires only action. Let us all live to make life less difficult for each other" - Paul D. Parkinson

Sample Stories from the Book

"Street Medicine": 23 years ago, Dr. Jim Withers of Pittsburgh Mercy Health System stepped out of the comforts of the hospital to care for the homeless and needy. Since then, over 10,000 people have been treated on the streets. Read Jim's full story on page 146 of "Unselfish".

One of the stories in "Unselfish" is about Liz Howell, who in spite of losing her husband on 9-11, rose from the pain and sorrow and dedicated her life to service. Liz is shown below, caring for a child during the Haiti earthquake. As we see what is happening in Nepal now, we are grateful for people like Liz and so many others who serve so unselfishly during natural disasters.

Four years ago, a tornado destroyed Cottons Service Center in Ringgold, GA. A competitor's service center down the street, Teter and Company, was unaffected. Then something unheard of happened: Teter and Company took their competitor in, and allowed him to set-up shop right on-site with them. Read the entire story in "UNSELFISH".

Part of the proceeds from Unselfish will be donated to the Cambodian Children’s Fund, a charity started 10 years ago by former Hollywood executive Scott Neeson, who left the Hollywood lifestyle to save children and families in Cambodia. His organization now cares for more than 17,000 people annually...Scott’s story is included in the book.
