Comments Do Unto Others: Extraordinary Acts Of Ordinary People

  • Mary

    Loved the topic and stories of the author's survival during WWII, and other people's experiences. On the whole, the writing was rather dry and lacking a flow. I think this is an important book, but wish it was easier to read.


  • Richard Houchin

    A very cool collection of historical stories of altruism, as well as some contemplation of the act of the selfless. I recommend reading it with Dawkins "The Selfish Gene" and finding a copy of Robert Axelrod's study on game theory and tit-for-tat strategy.


  • Diane Dunham

    Well written about the unsung heroes from the holocaust to 9/11. Didn't know there were so many people who saved so many lives. Especially during the holocaust.


  • Clevver

    Fascinating subject, but the book was painful to read. It read like a high school term paper that would have gotten a C.
