Praise for STRANGE CONTAGION
This book has big implications for workplaces, schools, and families. And it reads like a novel… only it isn’t fiction.
Deft in his analysis, ultimately Kravetz surrenders to the complexity of the human condition and reveals a profoundly simple truth: we are the solution we are looking for.
A striking argument, and cogent warning, in the age of going viral. This tale is worth catching!
A wise and searching book, bristling with restless intelligence. Though Strange Contagion starts with tragedy, it refuses to linger there, instead opening up into questions of community, resilience, and just what it is we owe to one another.
Lucid, profound and compassionate.
Compelling and well-researched, Lee Daniel Kravetz’s exploration of why and how social contagions take hold makes fascinating reading. The answers may not be easy but, as he cogently argues, there is much to be gained in their pursuit.
STRANGE CONTAGION is social science that reads like a mystery, and the story it tells could not be more important or more timely.
STRANGE CONTAGION is the best and most fascinating book I’ve read on social contagions, and a must-read for every parent, teacher, leader, and policy maker who wants to promote the spread of helpful thoughts and actions, and mitigate against harmful ones.
Fascinating, and by turns chilling and uplifting.
“Vital. Bold. And potentially lifesaving!”
“Chilling and important!”
“His gripping narrative has the tension of a thriller, but the stories he shares are tragically real.”
“A particularly topical pursuit.”
A desperate (and) dynamic odyssey.
A powerful antidote to ‘suicide contagion’.
