“The War for Kindness:  Building Empathy In A Fractured World” by Jamil Zaki


This book weaves science and stories together, examining why we struggle to understand people who aren’t like us, but find it easy to hate them.  Research on the phenomenon of empathy has demonstrated that we are less caring than we were even 30 years ago – yet it doesn’t have to be this way.  Empathy is not a fixed trait.  We’re not either born with it or lacking it.  It is a skill we can learn and strengthen over a lifetime.  This book offers invaluable insights about how to develop and strengthen our capacity for empathy, and the tremendous benefits we will reap as a result.
