Introducing the Great Reads Book Club

I’m very pleased to share the news that we’re kicking off a new book club at Mediate.com called “Great Reads.” We plan to convene periodic conversations focused on recently published conflict resolution volumes from both popular and academic presses. Our objective is to choose books that will be of interest to a wide range of mediators, arbitrators, and conflict specialists.

Mediate.com Great Reads Book Club

Each gathering will be hosted by an experienced dispute resolver, and will feature a live interview with the author followed by comments, questions, and discussion from attendees (who will be primarily mediators, arbitrators, and negotiators). These book club gatherings will be free and open to all Mediate.com Members. 

We are starting our series with New York Times bestselling author Amanda Ripley’s great book High Conflict: Why We Get Trapped and How We Get Out, just published by Simon and Schuster. Our good friend Peter Adler will interview Amanda, pose some of his own thoughts, questions, and observations, and then open the floor for discussion.

Stay tuned — we’ve got more great programs coming up soon!
