This review is from: Zero Degrees of Empathy: A new theory of human cruelty (Kindle Edition)
This is a fascinating book. Recommended to me by a friend who is a child psychologist I wondered whether it might be a bit too specialist for me but it is written really clearly and is accessible by the interested amateur. I have hardly stopped thinking about 'zero degrees empathy' as an explanation for some people's ability to treat other people as objects and it is amazing how often it has been a useful reference point when reading other books or even watching the news. It has had quite a profound effect on my behaviour and in my dealings with my family and friends as well as my colleagues. It certainly makes me think about the way I treat other humans.
