Very interesting and thought provoking.,
This review is from: The Lucifer Effect: How Good People Turn Evil (Paperback)
I went to an adult education class to study psychology and this book was recommended and I found it very interesting. I was a bit shocked to realize that it is posible for honest and moral people to turn and become cruel and sadistic. Basicaly the book is in two parts the first half is about a psychological experiment, being the Stanford Prison Experiment and then the second half about the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq which is all very enlightening and disturbing at the same time. I very much recommend this book, it is very much needed in society for people to understand some of the causes of cruel and inhumane acts.
