I enjoyed reading The Age of Empathy because it really hit home with me since I am a vegetarian and it was an "easy leap" to understand the empathy and compassion of animals and how it can easily apply to humans.
I think there is a lot to learn here in this very good read!!!
The importance of this book cannot be overstated. Finally a look at the biology of one of our most important traits. How empathy is linked to our success as a species is utterly undeniable. And the behavior is much less conscious than we think.
However, after listening to the incredible science behind Empathy, I can't help but feel that consciously widening this vastly unconscious trait's reach with our intellect and consciousness would push our species to the next frontier in our existence.
