Markmark1's review of: Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts
I picked up this book when I started to realize that I was starting to fall apart. Since I was starting to crumble, so was my relationship with my girlfriend. I was just a very anger person and I didn't like it. First off this book helped me understand why I do certain things. Why I lie, why I like to argue. Everything I use to say, I would state as if I was only right. The book does start off a bit slow and it's hard to keep reading but it picks up. It's hard to face something that you know is wrong. This book is a pick me up type book and it's great for those who are trying to better themselves and move on from a negative light into a positive. I've come to better some of my habits from this book and while I am not completely over my old habits, this book has helped me half way. My relationship also started to get better and in fact my girlfriend is currently reading this to help her with some of her habits.
I suggest buying this book. It is in someways a better way of understanding you and habits around you than listening to someone preach to you.
