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!

An excellent book given a second life on Audible

I've read this book and recommended it to a number of others. The Audible format gives it a new lease of life and I will be recommending it again.
I don't often give 5 stars which for me should be reserved for things you rave about and recommend unprompted.
Up there with 7 Habits in my book ;)

A Life Changing Masterpiece

This book got me out of my box. It made me rethink my relationships with many important people in my life.

The narrator delivers the message in a warm and comforting tone, kind of like a caring father or grandfather.

A must read for anyone!

Lots of repetition

I don't know how many time they repeat the same thing over and over again, but it's annoying. I kept waiting for them to get to the gold, and I was let down in the end. I also have taken many communications in business courses and read hundreds of self help books, so maybe that could be the cause for my opinion. Good news, if you're reading this, you want to better your life. If you skip to the end, you'll get the same info without wasting a bunch of time. Not as helpful as they claim to be. A book on communication skills would be more beneficial as a tool.
