Academically sound, but arguably useless for the non-academic
on 23 November 2015
I bought this book in the naïve belief that the information it contained would in some way provide an answer to the question, "How can I be better?"
Unfortunately it more or less told me that as I had no inferiority complex and no superiority complex, then my only 'answer' was the imposition of impulse control - which unfortunately I already knew, as do most people, even if we don't execute it.
I think perhaps I was looking for something like an extension of Stephen Covey's Three Resolutions from his book Principle Centered Leadership, and this wasn't it.
So if you like academic, sociological reads, enjoy.
If you're looking for something you can utilise yourself, go elsewhere.
