“The acknowledgement that selfishness pervades modern life, and our inherent desire for the opposite, is the great hope for us all, and our future. The stories in Unselfish give us great hope for the future.” (SCOTT NEESON, former President, Twentieth Century Fox International, Founder & Exec Dir, Cambodian Children’s Fund)
Considering that the average nonfiction book in America sells less than 250 copies a year, UNSELFISH has met with incredible success. The book, which celebrates acts of kindness and extraordinary sacrifices of regular people and celebrities, has sold out on Amazon three times. Released on May 5, 2015, UNSELFISH shares heartwarming stories and images from high school football players helping a special needs girl fit in, to a police officer feeding a hitchhiker and her dog, to a Hollywood producer leaving behind a 6-‐figure job to help children in Cambodia.
“Ten minutes into this book I was crying. The stories are so powerful and affirming,” writes Kirk in an Amazon review. “I’m reading this book with my grandson,” Chris E. Tew writes in his review. “We love the stories. They inspire us to be more generous, more loving and more humble.”
On a recent interview on The Marilu Henner Show, Henner told editor Paul Parkinson, “This should be on everyone’s coffee table so they can get inspired.”
As President of Gradual Elevate Media, Paul previously wrote the story for and oversaw the production of the feature film, “Nowhere Safe” – a movie that addresses the issue of cyberbullying. Paul’s work is in media that positively affects society and culture. He is currently collecting stories for a second book. For additional information, visit www.unselfishstories.com.
