Publisher's Summary

From sexual faking to family secrets, Dr. Harriet Lerner reveals how the struggle toward truth-telling is at the center of our deepest longings for intimacy, authenticity, and self-regard. Drawing on more than two decades of clinical experience, Dr. Lerner articulates her rich philosophy and thoughtful guidelines about speaking out and holding back. With the passion, humor, and clarity that have become her trademark, Lerner unravels the lies, secrets, and silence (our own and others') that affect our lives and teaches us how to widen the path to truth-telling for everyone.

Good Message

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?


Have you listened to any of Harriet Lerner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Honesty is still the best policy even though people deceive for what they believe are good reasons. .

Any additional comments?

Not the greatest narrator. Book was a little disjointed

I found it difficult to 'see' past the narrators voice which engendered a sense of tedium to this book. I could not bring myself to hear it out in its entirety

Did I miss something

I have to listen again I feel like it was a bit disjointed and not as much info on the dynamics behind deception as some of her other books
