Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me) - Carol Tavris / Elliot Aronson - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me):

The reasons behind everyone's lack of responsibility.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Understanding without vengeance, reparations without retaliation, are only possible if we are willing to stop justifying our own position."

Questions to ponder while reading Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me):

Do you feel the need to justify your decisions?

Can you own your mistakes?

My review of the book:

I loved the explanation of self-justification.

The book explains so much about everything.

Easy to read and well-researched.
