Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution

Philosopher and School of Life faculty member Roman Krznaric describes how childhood trauma helped him write his new book, and why he has founded the world’s first online Empathy Library.


I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to write a book about the art of living if you think you’ve got all the answers. It’s almost certain to be too preachy and too self-confident. My new book, Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution (published by Rider Books), is about how empathy – the ability to step imaginatively into the shoes of other people and look at the world from their perspective – can transform our everyday lives and the society we live.
