      Why do  people dodge responsibility when  things fall apart?
      Why the parade of public figures  unable to own up when they
      screw  up? Why  the  endless marital  quarrels  over who  is
      right?  Why  can we  see  hypocrisy  in  others but  not  in
      ourselves? Are  we all  liars? Or do  we really  believe the
      stories we tell?

      Renowned  social  psychologists   Carol  Tavris  and  Elliot
      Aronson take a  compelling look into how the  brain is wired
      for  self-justification.  When  we make  mistakes,  we  must
      calm  the cognitive  dissonance  that jars  our feelings  of
      self-worth. And  so we  create fictions  that absolve  us of
      responsibility,  restoring our  belief  that  we are  smart,
      moral, and right -- a belief that often keeps us on a course
      that is dumb, immoral, and wrong.

      Backed  by  years  of  research  and  delivered  in  lively,
      energetic prose, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) offers a
      fascinating explanation  of self-deception -- how  it works,
      the harm it can cause, and how we can overcome it.
