Kukk, the founding Director of the Center for Compassion, Creativity and Innovation will be here Saturday, October 27th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m to sign his powerful new book The Compassionate Achiever.  New research in biology, neuroscience and economics have found that compassion not only improves others’ lives; it can transform our own.  Dr. Kukk makes clear that practicing compassion isn’t about being a martyr or a paragon of virtue; it’s about rejecting rage and indifference and choosing instead to be a thoughtful, caring, problem-solver.
