520    When Lizzie Velasquez was 17 years old, she came across a 
       video online titled "The World's Ugliest Woman"--only to 
       discover that the 8-second viral video featured her. Born 
       with a genetic condition that makes it impossible for her 
       to gain weight, Lizzie had always known she was "different,
       " but after her online bullying went public she decided to
       stand up on behalf of victims everywhere. She also made it
       her mission to help create a kinder world.   Today, her 
       popular YouTube channel has half a million followers and 
       her massively popular TED talk has been seen more than 10 
       million times. In this daring and revelatory book, she 
       draws on her experiences overcoming bullying--from the 
       schoolyard to the Internet--to reveal the hidden forces 
       that give rise to cruelty, and how we can redirect them to
       unlock empathy and kindness. Lizzie shows how each one of 
       us can use everyday acts of empathy to create a kinder 
       culture and a better world. Her insights include:  How--
       and why--to integrate acts of kindness into your routine 
       How to truly embrace people's differences as well as your 
       own How to "try on" some confidence and manage the perils 
       of insecurity How to overcome challenges with the right 
       mental attitude Through her own story, Lizzie shows the 
       radical ripple-effect that kindness can have on the world 
       around us. Lizzie did not let a single harsh act define 
       who she was - she redefined herself, and started a 
       movement in the process. Our nation today feels absorbed, 
       she writes, in a culture of meanness, and we must focus--
       both collectively and as individuals--on instilling our 
       interactions and relationships with understanding.  Dare 
       to Be Kind is not about where you come from or what you've
       been through. It's about finding the path to radical 
       acceptance, love, and tolerance--of yourself and all of 
       those around you--and how that path can help you lead a 
       confident, resilient, and harmonious life, and ultimately,
       become a helper in forging a better future for our 
       children and a more compassionate world for everyone.
