January Book to Live By

How to Know a Person  by David Brooks

To kick off the New Year, The Spark is featuring Debbie’s favorite book of 2023 for the Book to Live By!

The one skill that lies at the heart of any healthy person or society is the ability to see someone else deeply and make them feel seen, valued, heard, and understood. Sadly, most humans don’t do this well. People feel invisible and misunderstood. In How to Know a Person, Brooks draws from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, theater, philosophy, history, and education to help readers do better, posing questions that are essential for all of us to become more understanding and considerate toward others, and to find the joy that comes from being seen.

This book is a valuable tool for your relationship arsenal. It is available today on Amazon.
