“Brooks beholds America’s 21st-century tribal feuds… with a clear, intelligent eye and a hospitable attitude… Only transcendence can open the way to better solutions down the road.” The New York Times

At a time of historic polarization, public leaders and ordinary citizens alike are wondering how to fight back against the bitterness and contempt washing over America. Drawing on history, cutting-edge social science and a decade of experience leading the American Enterprise Institute, one of the nation’s preeminent think tanks, Arthur C. Brooks shows that what the country needs is not agreement, but better disagreement. Brooks makes a case for love – a commitment to the good of our fellow citizens. A Harvard professor, social scientist, bestselling author and columnist at The Atlantic, Brooks uses a blend of science, ancient wisdom, philosophy, music and art to provide people with real-life strategies for lifting people up, bringing them together and improving happiness for all. He is the bestselling author of 11 books on topics ranging from economic opportunity to human happiness and star of the hit Netflix documentary The Pursuit. His most recent bestseller, Love Your Enemies, is a guide to building a better country and mending personal relationships amidst our culture of political polarization. He is working on a forthcoming book on finding meaning, success and deep purpose in the second half of life.
