GUEST BLOG / By Jonathan Karp, President & Chief Executive Officer, Simon & Schuster-- Normally, book publishers do not like to give away books because, as one of my colleagues often said, "Free is not a business model."
But we feel so strongly about what these books can do for all of us, as individuals and as citizens, we want to make them available to you for one month, as ebooks and audiobooks.
Both of these books are about how we communicate with each other—how we get past our disagreements and have better, more productive, and more satisfying conversations. According to the latest polling, a majority of Americans recognize that we are divided, and that the divisions seem to be growing wider and more acrimonious.
These books both offer insights into mediation, understanding, and maybe even reconciliation. I hope you'll read these books. I hope you'll tell others to read them as well. I am certain that they will enrich your approach to difficult conversations. Perhaps if we all get a little better at having those difficult conversations, we'll begin to find more common ground.
