In Turn Enemies Into Allies, I share multiple stories about seeing events through another’s eyes. I sometimes find that easy to do, and other times not easy at all. I think wearing masks in this Covid environment when we’re in close proximity to one another is a good idea, for example, and I’m not trying too hard to see the other side of that argument. And… I know there is one.

Which is probably why in my book I give so much weight to the power of inquiry, curiosity, and nonjudgment — key skills and mental models that give us half a chance to communicate civilly and learn what the world looks like outside our heads.
