About the book: The Power of Human is a powerful challenge to a world dominated by marketplace ethics and an optimistic-but-grounded look at what humans truly value. Backed by extensive research, presented in an approachable and conversational style, and full of surprising and counterintuitive observations, Waytz’s book is an essential look at our increasingly disconnected and affectless age and a powerful call to evolve and empower the robust social institutions and traditions that, literally, make life matter.

About the author: Adam Waytz is an award-winning social psychologist and associate professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere. He lives in Chicago.
