Self-Deception

August 22, 2006

Just finished reading Leadership and Self-Deception, by The Arbinger Institute. Very interesting book that should be read by everyone. It presents a very intriguing version of “being in the box” that rings truer than the usual usage. Much of it reminds me of Sartre’s “bad faith,” as well as my long held suspicion of “certainty.” I can see much of R.D. Laing’s Knots here as well. They have a new book out: The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict. I will buy this book based on the quality of the first one, and its interesting subject. It is so easy to fall into the trap described in and so difficult to escape that trap. Good luck to you all.
