Aida Flemming, the founder of the Kindness Club, a humane educational organization in Canada, dubbed fellow member Paul Watson "the hit man for the Kindness Club" in 1981 after hearing about a recent campaign, a title that he proudly wears to this day. A collection of essays from 1961 through 2022 cover Watson's early acts of compassion as a teenager to the founding of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Accompanying photographs are equally descriptive and capture the essence of these stories. Outrageous and courageous campaigns on every ocean and continent illuminate Watson's efforts to protect the rights of animals, ecosystems, and Indigenous peoples. Watson and Sea Shepherd parted ways in 2022. Watson discusses his break from Sea Shepard and writes about his newest venture, the Captain Paul Watson Foundation. He offers ten life lessons to inspire his readers to be hopeful, courageous, and kind to all living things. For more information, visit
