Positive Harmlessness Reviews

Positive Harmlessness in Practice

“A thoughtful, wise, and mind-opening exploration of ways to help make harmlessness experiential in a culture in which habits of harm are so pervasive that they are felt to be ‘normal’…Besides addressing harm with her characteristic passion and clarity, she also provides a unique Harmlessness Scale that gives readers the vocabulary and understanding necessary to recognize attitudes and characteristics that range from brutality to advocacy, making it possible to evaluate one’s own standing with regard to habits of harm and the hidden attitudes that may give rise to them.” [five stars]

Written in unfailingly clear and concise prose, this challenge to basic assumptions about human nature points the way toward a kinder, gentler world.”
