Publisher's Summary

Most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known phenomenon called "self-deception". We deceive ourselves into thinking we're doing the right thing for the right reason, but people won't follow a leader whose motives are selfish. The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed.
Through an entertaining and highly instructive story, this audiobook explains what self-deception is, how people get trapped in it, how it undermines relationships and organizational achievement, and - most importantly - the surprising way to solve it. A new edition of a customer favorite!

Should be a require read to every human

Great ideas. The only small problem is that the conversations in the book are a little repetitive, but it also helped memory and retention.

Like staring into a microscopic mirror.

I heard a speaker say "if you are pointing your finger at someone else, you need to realize that three fingers are pointed back at yourself." That might be the best way to describe this book. It constantly turns it back on the reader to seriously examine their own problems and areas of self deception.

This book was recommended to me from a speaker and author whose focus is leadership.

I think it is a great listen for all developing leaders (which is hopefully every leader).
