Against Empathy by Paul Bloom

If you have slipped into auto-pilot mode lately, sucked under by the demands of a busy schedule, this great little book might be just the thing to get you thinking again. Why ? Because its provocative premise goes against the grain, opening the door to a great debate.

Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion
(152.4 BLO) by Paul Bloom has certainly caught my attention and will hopefully also make it onto your own reading list.
