Renowned social psychologist and author Carol Tavris has written for the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, Scientific American, and many other publications. Tavris will discuss and sign the new paperback edition of her book Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts ($15.00 Harcourt Brace). Tavris, with coauthor Elliot Aronson, takes a compelling look into how the brain is wired for self-justification. 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.Request a signed copy: firstname.lastname@example.org (booksense)
