Reviews

Wonderfully humane, lucid and entertaining ... a brave and necessary tract for the times * Telegraph *
A great, provocative book ... that will legitimately change how you think about the world and your own sense of morality * The New York Times *
Bloom dismantles the argument that empathy is the basis of all morality ... Empathy, it turns out, is sentimental, superficial and racist * New Statesman *
The title may shock, but this is a book of calm reason and expansive compassion. It's also a pleasure to read: warm, lucid, and thought-provoking -- Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature
I couldn't put this brilliantly argued book down. Engaging and witty, learned and stim ulating, provocative and packed with cutting-edge findings, Against Empathy is sure to start many important debates * Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother *
