YouTube sensation Lizzie Velasquez offers a plan to create a "culture of kindness" that leads to a more compassionate world.

When Lizzie Velasquez was 17 years old, she came across a video online titledThe World's Ugliest Woman--only to discover that it featured her. In response, she decided to stand up on behalf of victims everywhere and created a YouTube channel and TED talk that have drawn tens of millions of viewers. In this revelatory book, Lizzie reveals the hidden forces that give rise to cruelty, and how we can redirect them to unlock empathy and kindness. Lizzie advocates we:
  • Fully embrace people's differences as well as our own

  • Believe in love and take on the world with therightmental attitude

Brilliantly drawing on Lizzie's own experiences,Dare to Be Kindpresents the path to radical acceptance, love, and tolerance, and provides a framework to help you lead a confident, resilient life and, ultimately, build a more compassionate world for everyone.
