From the New York Times bestselling author of The Smartest Kids in the World comes the first major book to use cutting-edge science and investigative reporting to explain the lure of malignant conflict in our private and public lives—and to reveal how we can escape it. When we are baffled by the insanity of the other side, it usually means the conflict itself has taken over, exerting a power all its own. As Ripley shows, high conflict operates differently from regular conflict.
