Kensington. Jan. 2020. 272p. ISBN 9780806540085. $26. SELF-HELP
.any people decry the prevalence of dishonesty in politics and society in general but fail to identify their own patterns of lying, says award-winning journalist Ketteler (Sew Retro). Drawing on examples from her own life, philosophy, behavioral economics, and spirituality, Ketteler grapples with the question of honesty in social situations, the workplace, marriage, and parenting. In one particularly stimulating chapter, she tackles the topic of self-honesty—are we really who we say we are? Do our behaviors line up with our beliefs?
VERDICT Great for generating discussion on the subject of authenticity and thinking through tough questions.
