The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World, by Jamil Zaki

This book was featured on the Greater Good Magazine (Berkley) "Our Favorite Books of 2019":

In our current world of political, religious, and racial divisions, it seems harder for many people to empathize with those who are different from them. And that’s a problem for our society: Empathy helps us to understand other people and to care about their welfare, building a sense of trust and connection that greases the wheels of cooperation.

In empathy researcher Jamil Zaki’s book, The War for Kindness, we’re given reason for hope. Presenting the latest research on empathy and kindness, he explains why empathy matters for our relationships, when it’s hard to empathize and why, and what conditions makes it easier to tap into our empathy. He argues that empathy is like a muscle that gets stronger if we exercise it, and his book gives practical tips on just how to do that.
