Chronic self-deception is no laughing matter...or is it?

82154-4 JacketPD0418.indd

The ego--the fear-soaked part of our minds--is happiest when we listen and do everything it asks, even when it doesn't make sense. Spiritual growth actually depends on listening to the ego, but only so we can learn not to do what it suggests. The ten ego lies documented in this book range from the idea that there is only one person who will complete us to the need to "win" by holding on to grudges the longest. Using humor and a solid base of academic and practical knowledge, "Dr. Dana" Marrocco helps readers gently undo the lies we all tell ourselves.

Foreword by Gary R. Renard, bestselling author of The Disappearance of the Universe.

Published by Ixia Press, an imprint of Dover Publications, Inc.
