Vital Lies, Simple Truths
The Science of Self-Deception
By Daniel Goleman

Vital Lies, Simple Truths (1996) - 288 pages
Vital Lies, Simple Truths at Amazon.com

Vital Lies, Simple Truths is a penetrating analysis of the ways we deceive ourselves. Daniel Goleman draws on evidence of all kinds - from brain function to social dynamics - to reveal how we skew our most intimate relationships, our day-to-day lives, and our common reality by burying painful insights and memories. The self-deception is our means of psychic preservation, the currency of survival in which an entire society colludes. 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 that is central to our psychological existence.

Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., writes regularly on behavioral science for The New York Times. He is a former visiting professor at Harvard University and former senior editor of Psychology Today.
