Reviews

"Arthur Brooks is a...former French horn player who decided to be an egghead late in life, he is a unique mix of Catholic piety, data obsession, sartorial connoisseurism, physical fitness, old-soul wisdom, and basic decency."--Jonah Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of Suicide of the West
"Arthur Brooks offers the practical prescription in Love Your Enemies that could lead to a more peaceful, just, sustainable, and healthier world."--Deepak Chopra, Author, The Healing Self
"Love Your Enemies is a handbook for a new generation of leaders who want to bring America together--and anyone seeking to be more effective in a fractious political environment."--Steve Case, Chairman and CEO of Revolution and co-founder of AOL
"In Love Your Enemies, Arthur Brooks reminds us that we can disagree without being disagreeable, and that everyday citizens have the power to bring our country back together."--David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama
"If you're satisfied with our toxic ideological climate, then don't bother reading this book. But if you'd like to rebel against the present nonsense, Arthur Brooks can show us how to do it with joy and confidence -- and regardless of your political preferences."--Ben Sasse, U.S. Senator from Nebraska
"If we won't listen to each other, maybe we can start by listening to Arthur Brooks. Love Your Enemies offers a heartfelt and patriotic case for how we can put our contempt aside to work together again."--Simon Sinek, Optimist and New York Times Bestselling Author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last
"The signal achievement of Arthur Brooks' latest book is to demonstrate how the seemingly 'soft' virtues of love, friendship, and warm-heartedness are, in point of fact, the very qualities most needed to make real progress in the rough and tumble of the political and cultural conversation."--Bishop Robert Barron, Founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
