Johnwrochester's review of: Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts
1 word... FASCINATING. I think that everyone reading this book will get a gentle guilt free nudge that you've been in the same situation. Why do we make excuses for ourselves while making fun of others failing at the same exact thing? Some pretty interesting theories pop up such as (bad example, so forgive me) if you pick your nose, its something out of necessity, but if you see someone else pick their nose, you watch them like a hawk until they go to the bathroom to wash their hands! Its a matter of someone else's germs are more lethal than yours. Its also an admission of embarrassment when you see someone else picking their nose because you are embarrassed for them, and to disassociate yourself with them, you laugh in order to stay as far back as possible. Great read, really makes you think and change your ways!
