In this podcast episode, Dave Wells summarizes the key points in Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt. Bestselling author Arthur C. Brooks, president of American Enterprise Institute, shows that abuse and outrage are not the right formula for lasting success. Brooks offers a better way to lead based on bridging divides and mending relationships.

Wells is a Tennessee state coordinator for Better Angels, a national civic  movement to reduce political polarization in the United States by bringing liberals and conservatives together to understand each other beyond stereotypes, teaching practical skills for communicating across political differences.
