This phenomenal bestseller—over 525,000 copies sold—expanded in a new third edition, explores how we often misunderstand the causes of our conflicts and shows us the paths to achieving true peace within ourselves and our relationships.
In this day and age, perhaps there is nothing more important than knowing how to heal relationships that are breaking and how to maintain connections when people are pulling apart. So many of our conflicts seem unsolvable, but what if conflicts at home, at work, and in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve?
This book unfolds as a story. Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost his father at the hands of each other's cousins. The Anatomy of Peace is the story of how they come together, how they help their warring parents and children come together, and how we too can find our way out of the personal, professional, and global conflicts that weigh us down. This expanded third edition includes diagrams and discussions that further explain some of the book's approaches, current research about key ideas, and how the transformation approach in the book relates to Arbinger's comprehensive organizational mindset-change process.
