New book out today: EMPATHY: A Handbook for Revolution - by Roman Krznaric | empathy | Scoop.it

Today is launch day for my new book, Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution. More than ten years in the making, I explore the six habits of highly empathic people, and how stepping into other people’s shoes can both transform everyday life and create radical social change.

You can find out more about the book here. 

 

I discuss some of the key ideas in the book in this article in the Guardian, and in my new TEDx talk How to Start an Empathy Revolution.

Alongside the book, I have launched the world’s first online Empathy Library, a digital treasure house where you can find powerful and inspiring books and films all about empathy. Do take a look.

More than ten years in the making,

I explore the six habits of

highly empathic people, 


Please spread word about the book to friends, family, lovers and strangers. And let me know what you think of it!
