Inhaltsangabe

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? 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.

Kritikerstimmen

"Thanks, in part, to the scientific evidence it provides and the charm of its down-to-earth, commonsensical tone, Mistakes Were Made is convincing. Reading it, we recognize the behavior of our leaders, our loved ones, and—if we're honest—ourselves, and some of the more perplexing mysteries of human nature begin to seem a little clearer." (Francine Prose, O, The Oprah Magazine)
"By turns entertaining, illuminating and—when you recognize yourself in the stories it tells—mortifying." ( The Wall Street Journal)

Great book but a little light on practical recommendations

Nevertheless, everybody should read/listen to this book. Even though knowing about confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance before the book, it still changed my way of looking at business decisions and situations in my relationship.

Not a mistake to listen to this book

I gained a much better idea about the utility of the concept of cognitive dissonance reduction. The strength of the book are some very well written chapters, where the authors explain cases from religious cults, police interrogation. marriage and politics using cognitive dissonance reduction. If I should have a small complaint about the book, it would be, the sense of a liberal bias. I don't remember them bringing any examples of cognitive dissonance reduction coming from people of the left. I wasn't really captivated what they said about stereotypes either, where Lee Jusim has convinced me that stereotypes are less of the mark than previously supposed.
