From bestselling author, media pioneer, and curator of TED, comes an inspiring guide to amplifying kindness and igniting a movement on both an individual and global scale.

Chris Anderson has led TED since 2001, overseeing its transformation from an annual conference to a nonprofit with global reach, sharing TED Talks, podcasts, and TED-Ed videos freely to all.

Today’s culture seems to be trending ever meaner and more divisive: INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY offers an antidote. Chris Anderson argues that by rethinking generosity in this connected era, we can shape it into a force that can spread across the world. Generosity? Really?! It seems too small a force arrayed against today’s problems. But the pandemic taught us that even a tiny virus can have global impact by virtue of being infectious. So what does it take to make generosity infectious? There are dozens of inspiring people out there, toiling away from the limelight, who have demonstrated how this is possible. The book is filled with their stories, which collectively offer a playbook we can all make use of. The result? A fundamentally more hopeful view of human possibility in the 21st century.

As the curator of TED for over twenty years, Anderson has seen first-hand the ways in which ideas can spread. Through the power of the internet, he has helped the world’s boldest thinkers share their most uplifting and world-changing concepts and with INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY, Anderson encourages all of us to harness the internet as a force that brings people together instead of driving them apart. Through a combination of inspiring stories, cutting-edge psychological research, and practical guidance INFECTIOUS GENEROSITY serves as both a manifesto and a playbook for embarking on a journey of generosity. Broken into three sections, WHY Infectious Generosity’s time has come; HOW we each can play part; WHAT IF? Imagining a world in which Infectious Generosity has claimed its rightful place
