- VITAL LIES, SIMPLE TRUTHS: The Psychology of Self-Deception
DetailsVital lies, simple truths is a penetrating analysis of the ways in which we deceive ourselves. Daniel Goleman draws on evidence of all kinds - from brain function to social dynamics - to reveal how we must distort our most intimate relationships and our day to-day lives by burying painful insights and memories. This self-deception is our means of psychological self-preservation, the currency of survival in which society transacts. But although self-deception is sometimes benign, it can also be dangerous and life diminishing. This important book both illuminates and raises challenging questions about a subject central to our psychological existence.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., is the author of the world-wide bestsellers Emotional Intelligence and Working with Emotional Intelligence, and coauthor of Primal Leadership.
