Publisher's Summary

From the authors of Leadership and Self-Deception (over two million copies sold) comes a new edition of this best seller that has been thoroughly revised to more effectively address the diversity, equity, and inclusion challenges that plague our communities and hinder our organizations.

What if conflicts at home, at work, and in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve?

The Anatomy of Peace uses a fictional story of an Arab and a Jew - both of whom lost their fathers at the hands of the other’s cousins - to powerfully show listeners the way to transform conflict. We learn how they come together, how they help parents and children come together, and how we, too, can find our way out of the personal, professional, and social conflicts that weigh us down.

The fourth edition includes revisions and new materials and resources that increase its relevance and usefulness at a time of deeply entrenched divisions throughout society. Additionally, it includes new detailed discussions of the pattern of dehumanization that lies at the heart of today’s most pressing struggles with prejudice and discrimination - challenges that cannot be solved until the origins of bias and discrimination are properly understood and addressed. The new edition is a unique and vital resource for combatting racism and prejudice in their many manifestations.

Helpful

The insights in this book are simple and effective. Even before I had finished reading it I have found it easier or maybe more possible to manage myself in emotionally difficult situations.

Thoughtful and immersive story

I really loved the thoughtfulness this book engendered in me. Every time I listened to this story, I have been able to find more and more ways to find peace within myself and with every relationships. I highly recommend this book and will be rereading it many times on my own journey of growth.

The narrator is wonderful in this audiobook. His ability to create different voices for the characters made it easier for me to immerse myself in the story. I even found myself forgetting that it was a single person reading each part.

Life changing

I’ve rarely felt such regular desires to change. One of my new faves. Devoured it twice already. Excited to implement some of the ideas presented as I try to be a better husband, father, leader, and teacher.

Everyone would benefit from this mastery

Quite simply the best book on finding peace in life. Unreal. I wish there were semesters in high school dedicated to this or even elementary school. I have recommended this book to every significant person in my life and even some strangers! I think what makes it so good is reading the first book self deception and leadership. They foreshadow the sage Lou’s journey and man did they nail this book. Read it — write the letters you will be inspired to write and watch your life change.

My husband mentioned it 5 yrs ago - I wish I’d read it sooner!

A very moving coherent and well produced piece. Enjoy and feel the good that is present and expanding in our world.
