"One Good Deed" is Erin McHugh's account of how she spent one year doing at least one good deed per day. The 'good deed' in question didn't have to be something big or elaborate - it could be something as simple as calling up a friend to let them know she was thinking of them, handing over a cup of coffee to somebody in need, or even just biting her tongue and letting something go.While you could read "One Good Deed" in one sitting, it would really be doing it a disservice. To fully appreciate it, it is better read in small doses - a couple of days' worth here, a couple of days' worth there. That way the good deeds never get stale, and Erin McHugh is bound to put a smile on your face while reading it. It's such a breath of fresh air to read an entire book about somebody who's genuinely trying to be NICE - through no ulterior motive, but just because it seemed like a good idea.
