Overview

Conflict is inevitable in life, and good conflict provides the necessary friction in relationships and communities to push positive change forward. But high conflict is very different. High conflict occurs when people take an 'us versus them' stance, letting the conflict itself take charge.

Amanda Ripley is a renowned journalist and author, having written for The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. In this book, Ripley takes a deep dive into what high conflict is, why it's so bad for our society, and how we can deal with it.

Our modern world is one in which some forms of conflict are inescapable. But High Conflict provides us with perspective on how harmful forms of conflict arise, and how we can control our own role in them.

"This phenomenon of high conflict is fascinating and misunderstood. If we don't learn to recognize, navigate, and even prevent it, we will all be in its thrall, sooner or later."
