Why do people dodge responsibility when things fall apart? Why
the parade of public figures unable to own up when they screw up?
Why the endless marital quarrels over who is right? Why can we see
hypocrisy in others but not in ourselves? Are we all liars? Or do
we really believe the stories we tell?
Backed by years of research and delivered in lively, energetic
prose, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) offers
a fascinating explanation of self-deception-how it works, the harm
it can cause, and how we can overcome it.
