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!

I will read this again and share it with other--I've already started, in fact. This is the leadership book that's impacted me the most in the past ten years or more. It has broad and deep implications and is literally helping me improve my life and my work
I don't understand why this book is not required reading for everybody in every walk of life. The very simple insights it contains regarding our own behaviors can completely change the way we see and interact with the world, for the better.
I have listened to the book many times. I regularly need to review the content. The reader on this version is not nearly as good as the reader on the first addition. Much harder to listen to.
Not such a boring story
So boring, didn't even reach half of it.
Pretty good book. Easy to read and follow. Helps you to realize that others aren't always the problem...take a look in the mirror. Sometimes we are the problem that sabotages the results we are trying to achieve.
We are studying this book for work. I found it to be not only for work but my home life as well as anything else very uplifting and has changed my opinion of how I see people.
