About the Author

Dr. Carol Tavris's work as a writer, teacher, and lecturer has been devoted to educating the public about psychological science. She has spoken to students, psychologists, mediators, lawyers, judges, physicians, business executives, and general audiences on, among other topics, self-justification; science and pseudoscience in psychology; gender and sexuality; critical thinking; and anger. In the legal arena, she has given many addresses and workshops to attorneys and judges on the difference between testimony based on good psychological science and that based on pseudoscience and subjective clinical opinion.

Elliot Aronson is currently Professor Emeritus at the University of California in Santa Cruz. He has long-standing research interests in social influence and attitude change, cognitive dissonance, research methodology, and interpersonal attraction. Professor Aronson's experiments are aimed both at testing theory and at improving the human condition by influencing people to change dysfunctional attitudes and behaviours. In 1999, he won the American Psychological Association's Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award, making him the only psychologist to have won APA's highest awards in all three major academic categories: distinguished writing (1973), distinguished teaching (1980), and distinguished research (1999).

Reviews

"Every page sparkles with sharp insight and keen observation. Mistakes were made-but not in this book!"

-- Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness

"A revelatory study of how lovers, lawyers, doctors, politicians-and all of us-pull the wool over our own eyes . . . Reading it, we recognize the behavior of our leaders, our loved ones, and-if we're honest-ourselves, and some of the more perplexing mysteries of human nature begin to seem a little clearer."

-- Francine Prose * O, The Oprah Magazine *

"Entertaining, illuminating and-when you recognize yourself in the stories it tells-mortifying."

* Wall Street Journal *
