Product Details


“In this landmark book, Jamil Zaki gives us a revolutionary perspective on empathy: Empathy can be developed, and, when it is, people, relationships, organizations, and cultures are changed. Scientific, gripping, groundbreaking, and hopeful, The War for Kindness is the message for our times.”
Carol Dweck, Stanford University, author of Mindset   
“In a time when it seems empathy is a lost cause and compassion is a dying art, it may not be too late to revive the better angels of our nature. Jamil Zaki is one of the brightest lights in psychology, and in this gripping book he shows that kindness is not a sign of weakness but a source of strength.”
—Adam Grant, author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B (with Sheryl Sandberg)

“Beautifully written and deeply felt, The War for Kindness is an outstanding scientific analysis of our species’ best and last hope for survival—our unique ability to care about each other.”
—Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University, author of Stumbling on Happiness
