Abstract:
One in six Americans have stopped talking to close friends and family members over politics. Ideological polarization is at higher levels than at any time since the Civil War. America has developed a habit of seeing people who disagree with us not as merely incorrect or misguided, but as worthless. Brooks shows that treating others with contempt and out-outraging the other side is not a formula for lasting success. He offers a new way to lead based not on attacking others, but on bridging national divides and mending personal relationships. -- adapted from Amazon.com info.
