I enjoyed this, although obviously I never do any of this self-justification stuff. ( )

This book turned out to be really interesting. In some ways it felt like it was rehashing the same points with different stories, but they were good points. Most importantly, I think it did a decent job of presenting situations that we've all run into, giving the reader plenty of food for thought. ( )

I know a few people for whom this would be an excellent read. Unfortunately, they probably wouldn't pick it up. Makes me wonder about my own memory... ( )

Great book, makes a great compromise between not needlessly punishing yourself and actively seeking to learn and grow from mistakes. Includes some great insights about American culture and how conflict propagates between different groups. ( )

I enjoy this kind of book on occassion and I did find it interesting to delve into how people can deceive themselves to maintain their view of themselves as 'good people'. There were some bits which didn't 'ring' for me (i.e. where it felt to me as though the author was proclaiming their own agenda - but then agaiin it's not exactly uncommon for people to do this) but overall I'm pleased that I listened to this particular book.

Epígraf

We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield.
--George Orwell (1946)
A great nation is like a great man:
When he makes a mistake, he realizes it.
Having realized it, he admits it.
Having admitted it, he corrects it.
He considers those who point out his faults as his most benevolent teachers.
--Lao Tzu

(Introduction): As fallible human beintgts, all of us share the impulse to justify ourselves and avoid taking responsibility for any actions that turn out to be harmful, immoral, or stupid.
It's fascinating, and sometimes funny, to read doomsday predictions, but it's even more fascinating to watch what happens to the reasoning of true believers when the prediction flops and the world keeps muddling along.
