Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution

New book! Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution will be published in the UK on February 6, 2014.


Roman Krznaric argues our brains are wired for social connection: empathy is at the heart of who we are. It’s an essential, transforming quality we must develop for the 21st Century.


Through encounters with actors, activists, groundbreaking designers, undercover journalists, nurses, bankers and neuroscientists, Krznaric defines a new breed of adventurer. He sets out the six life-enhancing habits of highly empathic people, whose skills enable them to connect with others in extraordinary ways.


Empathy has the power to transform relationships, from the personal to the political. In this way it will be key to fundamental social change – making this book a manifesto for revolution.
