"A road map for restoring dignity and compassion." -Adam Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Give and Take An urgent yet hopeful analysis of the twenty-first-century surge in dehumanization, and how we can reverse it. Everyday life is increasingly human-free, with faceless technology controlling our lives and mediating our interactions with other people-but it doesn't have to be. In The Power of Human, social psychologist Adam Waytz reveals the cost of losing our humanity and shares scientific strategies for counteracting this downward trend, such as promoting variability and social connection at work, addressing power asymmetries in conflict, and forming complementary partnerships with technology. Essential reading for individuals and institutions alike, this book provides unique, evidence-based solutions to the problem of dehumanization to help us to best utilize the influence we have on one another.
