Summary
  • To one degree or another, we all misjudge reality. Our perception--of ourselves and the world around us--is much more malleable than we realize. This self-deception influences every major aspect of our personal and social life, including relationships, sex, politics, careers, and health
  • The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Why We Make Mistakes presents an analysis of the human inclination toward self-deception that explains how selective misperception influences every major aspect of life, has powerful placebo effects and does not always have negative consequences
