Our country is divided in so many ways, with a growing chasm between men and women.

The news cycle is discouraging. Emotional and physical toxicity is at an all-time high. We're all starting to feel it in some shape or form, and many of us are struggling with how to keep our children protected from it all.

The problem is we're suffering from an empathy deficit.

But the really good news is there's a way out.

Healing starts with re-examining our modern myths about how we work, what "quality time" at home really means, and why the age-old battle of the sexes persists.

We can't continue down the path of least resistance. We need to carve a new way.

Currency of Empathy sets the stage for that new way by tackling disturbingly common issues like:

  • The fact that 70% of people say they are disengaged at work
  • The rise in anxiety and depression in children
  • The lack of women in leadership
  • And so many more headline-dominating crises!
  • But here's the real kicker - it's not about gender - it's about nurturing empathy in our children and ourselves so we can help shape and mold happier, healthier, more productive communities and societies.

    What is the hope of this book? That we all start valuing caring - especially parenting - in a way that helps us reprioritize how we spend our time, grow the superpower of affective empathy in children and adults, and heal our empathy deficit.

    It's that simple, even if it doesn't seem easy, but we're willing to bet this book is the motivator you've been waiting for.

    Currency of Empathy already at work:

    "The revolution of the future will hinge on the empathy-inducing "co-creation" explained so masterfully and entertainingly in these pages."

    "If someone feels that they could use some advice on improving their quality of life - this book is an answer."

    "This book is academic without being dense and warm without being overly sentimental or new-agey."

    "... an uplifting, inspiring book. It makes you think. It makes you smile. And it makes you feel more hopeful than you did before you picked it up!"

    "The book will cause you to self-examine. It will provoke you to think, and think again."

    #1 New York Times bestseller

    "Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society." --Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies

    A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller

    Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world's foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers' capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments--from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga--that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain's natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk's own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal--and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

    One woman's narratively propulsive, lyrical search to understand the land she farms--and her own neurodivergent mind

    As Rebecca Schiller's young family moves to a two-acre homestead in the English countryside, Rebecca begins to suffer frequent falls, uncontrollable rages, and mysterious lapses in memory. Doctor after doctor delivers one misdiagnosis after another. When the answer comes, it's utterly unexpected: severe ADHD.

    Rebecca's narrative of her harrowing year is compulsively readable and ferociously candid, both a medical mystery and a love song to the landscape she calls home. Here is a clarion call to the growing number of neurodivergent people pushing back against simplistic narratives of minds that are either normal and good or different and broken.

    Our earliest experiences shape our lives far down the road, and What Happened to You? provides powerful scientific and emotional insights into the behavioral patterns so many of us struggle to understand.

    "Through this lens we can build a renewed sense of personal self-worth and ultimately recalibrate our responses to circumstances, situations, and relationships. It is, in other words, the key to reshaping our very lives."--Oprah Winfrey

    This book is going to change the way you see your life.

    Have you ever wondered Why did I do that? or Why can't I just control my behavior? Others may judge our reactions and think, What's wrong with that person? When questioning our emotions, it's easy to place the blame on ourselves; holding ourselves and those around us to an impossible standard. It's time we started asking a different question.

    Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offer a groundbreaking and profound shift from asking "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?"

    Here, Winfrey shares stories from her own past, understanding through experience the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma and adversity at a young age. In conversation throughout the book, she and Dr. Perry focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves. It's a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it's one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future--opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.
