Exceptional way of explaining emotions.

I confess that it took me a while to find a book that would talk about empathy without being mystic or with too much emphasis on low empath people.
I love the fact that the author went after the science behind empaths and developed this depicted and careful explanation and a training of your own level of empathy.
It was touching and smart and bright and very insightful.
I'm so glad I found this book!

Fans of Compassion - try Empathy and Compassion!

Would you listen to The Art of Empathy again? Why?

Yes. There is so much information in this book. Karla McLaren seems to be creating a whole department of learning, with all of these brand new terms, and it is totally okay, in fact it is brilliant. So read it again and take notes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is the young Karla. I imagine her whispering to dogs as she sits under the table free of stimulus, because dogs are without judgment and love you no matter what.

What did you learn from The Art of Empathy that you would use in your daily life?

I learned you can present as completely uninterested and actually be burnt out empathetically but highly empathetic.

Wow, amazing!

Loved this book! Thank you Karla for your extensive research but mostly for sharing your findings and personal story. If you have read her other book Language of Emotions you might think some parts are repetitive but in my opinion these are required to put her point across. The last chapter where she talks about workplace empathy was very significant to me and it also summarized her work in a practical way.
