OrangeReviewStarThis much-needed book from business coach Holland and city commissioner Silvers (Paducah, KY) arrives at a time when many families and friends find themselves on opposite sides of the aisle when discussing political issues. The authors share how to give grace and be vulnerable when addressing topics that affect families and communities. They offer exercises and reflections for keeping conversations productive and flowing as well as unpack the reasons why we feel the way we do—our deeper values and concerns—to assist in honing future conversations around hot-button subjects.
VERDICT A must-read and relevant text for anyone talking about today's politics.
