• Against Empathy the Case for Rational Compassion
    Against Empathy the Case for Rational Compassion
    In a divided world, empathy is not the solution, it is the problem.

    We think of empathy - the ability to feel the suffering of others for ourselves - as the ultimate source of all good behaviour. But while it inspires care and protection in personal relationships, it has the opposite effect in the wider world. As the latest research in psychology and neuroscience shows, we feel empathy most for those we find attractive and who seem similar to us and not at all for those who are different, distant or anonymous. Empathy therefore biases us in favour of individuals we know while numbing us to the plight of thousands. Guiding us expertly through the experiments, case studies and arguments on all sides, Paul Bloom ultimately shows that some of our worst decisions - in charity, child-raising, criminal justice, climate change and war - are motivated by this wolf in sheep's clothing.

    Brilliantly argued, urgent and humane, Against Empathy overturns widely held assumptions to reveal one of the most profound yet overlooked sources of human conflict.

  • Am I Dreaming The New Science of Consciousness and How Altered States Reboot the Brain
    Am I Dreaming The New Science of Consciousness and How Altered States Reboot the Brain
    When a computer goes wrong, we are told to turn it off and on again. In Am I Dreaming?, science journalist James Kingsland reveals how the human brain is remarkably similar. By rebooting our hard-wired patterns of thinking - through so-called 'altered states of consciousness' - we can gain new perspectives into ourselves and the world around us.

    From shamans in Peru to tech workers in Silicon Valley, Kingsland provides a fascinating tour through lucid dreams, mindfulness, hypnotic trances, virtual reality and drug-induced hallucinations. An eye-opening insight into perception and consciousness, this is also a provocative argument for how altered states can significantly boost our mental health.

  • American Overdose The Opioid Tragedy in Three Acts
    American Overdose The Opioid Tragedy in Three Acts
    LONGLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING 2019

    A devastating portrait of America's opioid painkiller epidemic - the deadliest drug crisis in US history.

    One hundred and fifty Americans are killed each day by the opioid epidemic. But, as Chris McGreal reveals, it was an avoidable tragedy driven by bad science, corporate greed and a corrupted medical system. He tells the stories of the families devastated by painkillers they thought would heal, and the physicians and scientists who took on the drug companies behind the epidemic. American Overdose is a powerful account of the terrible human cost of the crisis, and a stark warning of the consequences of running a health care system as a business, not a service.
