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)
