Just finished reading Kathryn Schulz's "Being Wrong". A real brain-shaker and delightfully optimistic. Of particular interest are the chapters on changing minds. Example: how a die-hard KKK bigot became a pro-intergration Trade Union organizer, not because he was fiercely opposed but by slowly forming a friendship with a radical, black woman. Perhaps we should choose to moderate our tone when discussing issues with Supers?

 

It's not a book that will change my life in an "Oprah" sense but has, I think, influenced the way I see myself and other people. Highly recommended.
