Publisher's Summary

Since its original publication nine years ago, Leadership and Self-Deception has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon. Rather than tapering off, it has sold more copies each year since 2004 than it did in any of the first four years after publication. The book's central insight - that the key to leadership lays not in what we do, but in who we are - has proved to have powerful resonances not only for organizational leadership, but in fans' personal lives as well. 

This new edition has been revised throughout to make the story more readable and compelling. And drawing on the extensive correspondence the authors have received over the years they have added a section that outlines the many ways that listeners have been using Leadership and Self-Deception, focusing on five specific areas: hiring, team-building, conflict resolution, accountability, and personal growth and development. 

Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story about an executive facing challenges at work and at home to expose the subtle psychological processes that conceal our true motivations and intentions from us and trap us in a "box" of endless self-justification - even when we're convinced we're doing the right thing. Most importantly, the book shows us the way out. Listeners will discover what millions already have - how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what's right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.

terrible editing good content

chapters repeat and the final chapter has a chunk missing. plus a random change of narrator for 2 chapters in the middle, which are then repeated by the old narrator again.

interesting topic though, the book does well at setting it out.

Was Good Until..

This book Was good until you get to a chapter that completely repeats itself and another from another book of the same name.
Yep should just bought the blue and white cover one in the first place.
