Start a conversation with a political opponent. Would you even know how to open? We've gotten very good at pushing each other's buttons, but show limited ability to actually communicate.
James Hoggan, who comes from a public relations background, gathers wisdom from respected thinkers in his book I'm Right and You're an Idiot: The Toxic State of Public Discourse and How to Clean it Up.
The book is now in a second edition reflecting the results and aftermath of the 2016 election.
We pick the author's brain for ideas on getting along.
