I Never Thought of It That Way

I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times is a new book by Mónica Guzmán, chief storyteller at Braver Angels and the loving liberal daughter of Mexican immigrants who voted — twice — for Donald Trump. In this timely, personal guide for Reds, Blues, and everyone in-between, she shares techniques and fresh, surprising insights to prove that seeing where people are coming from isn’t just possible. It’s easier than many of us think.
