LEE DANIEL KRAVETZ

Strange Contagion: Inside the Surprising Science of Infectious Behaviors and Viral Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves

Taking readers on a years-long journey as he attempts to understand why eight Palo Alto teenagers ended their own lives in the same manner, Kravetz (coauthor of Supersurvivors) asks whether people can consciously or unconsciously catch infectious ideas and behaviors. In conversations with behavioral experts, Kravetz considers how behaviors such as eating disorders, emotional burnout, hysteria, fear, violence, suicide, and even a bizarre case of impulsive uncontrollable laughter can become contagious and get transmitted throughout a community.
