The Empathy Instinct: How to Create a More Civil Society by Peter Bazalgette
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I mistook a bright cover, a perfect placing of the book in a bookshop window, and a trending keyword in the title for a content. The title seemed promising and the issue – urgently relevant. However, the only reason I managed to finish reading this mix of half-essays by a Sir-Ken–Robinson–wanna–be is my severe unfinished book guilt syndrome. I fell asleep more than a few times while burning time on this blunder of words and author's superficial attempt to grasp everything from Holocaust to autism, from Armenian genocide to criminal justice reform, from Srebrenica to nursing homes, from whatever to Big Brother and everything in between. I can't even tell you what the thesis was. Superficial doesn't begin to describe it.
