Mistakes Were Made, but Not by Me

Mistakes Were Made, but Not by Me

Carol Tavris

Overview

Everyone keeps mistakes to themselves - you, your friends, doctors, lawyers... heck, even presidents. We hate to admit our mistakes, but why? And does this do us any good?

In 2007, social psychologist Carol Tavris teamed up in 2007 with Elliot Aronson, inventor of the Jigsaw Classroom and one of the top 100 psychologists of the 20th century, to give us answers to these questions in book form. Mistakes Were Made, But Not By Me goes into the mechanisms in our brains that prevent us from admitting our mistakes, showing how this causes damages in all areas of life, and providing valuable starting points to finally admit to them.
