This event will be the kick-off a monthly study group focused on this book. Attending March 7 does not require you to commit to the book group.

Here’s one review of the book:

This book provided relevant and easy-to-follow examples and tips for how to communicate and persuade others. It focuses mostly on political issues but these tips could be applied to any message you are trying to convey. I often struggle with understanding how others could disagree with me on what feels (to me) like very obvious "right" and "wrong" issues. This book helps to uncover the underlying ethical framework that lead people to their beliefs and disagreements and defines strategies for leveraging those ethical zones to get others to see your point of view. Once you read the book, you start seeing examples everywhere of how the concepts could be/are being used!

Also, if you decide to attend on March 7, there is a survey the author would appreciate you taking ahead of time.  It is the Moral Foundations Questionnaire. Participants on March 7 will be asked to refer to their scores but will not need to share any information from the questionnaire.
