    1. This is a hard book to read - not because the language or ideas are lofty (just the opposite, the ideas have been made extremely accessible) -- the reason this book was hard to read, is because it nearly forces you to take a hard look at the way you live, the way you treat others, and the way you navigate through business, personal, and other situations. The biggest take aways from this book, in my humble opinion, are that we often are at least part of the cause of the problems that we *blame* o [...]

    2. Good principles, a good teaching tool for organizations, but painful to get through.I assume the story format is aimed to make the read easier to get through and understand, but instead it felt like a local TV commercial with a bad script. I would prefer that the narrator was straight, to-the-point and speaking to the reader. Examples are helpful, but following Tom's slow learning process made me feel like I was in a math class that I was too advanced for, ready to move on to the more complicate [...]

    3. I like to refer to this book as "the worst book I ever finished reading". Meaning that I kept reading it all the way to the end (including the 20 or so pages of Arbinger Institute sales pitch), which was long past the point where I wanted to put it down and not pick it back up again. What really got me was the condescending tone of the narrator. Others have described the same thing as "simplifying concepts to almost childlike speaking" but in reality, the narrator is so condescending to the read [...]

    4. I know a lot of people who really love this book. It takes complex ideas and presents them in an easy-to-follow format. Which is fine if you're 10 years old. I felt like it was dumbed-down and assumed the reader is less than intelligent. Despite its big print, simple sentences, and few pages, it was a struggle to make it to the end. Want the same ideas presented to competent adults? Check out "Bonds that Make Us Free" by C. Terry Warner.

    5. "My self-justifying image about being learned can be the very thing that sometimes keeps me from learning."- The Arbinger Institute, Leadership and Self-DeceptionLike most series, I tend to read them backwards. I've known about these Arbinger books for years, but only recently read them. Last year I read Anatomy of Peace and figured it made sense to close the circle on the "box" and read the book that started the whole Arbinger/Self-Deception/Leadership thing. A quick background (I talk about th [...]

    6. I read this book in one dayI just couldn't put it down. An excellent book on how to be a better person and leader. Really set well with my beliefs on building relationships which are the love of others versus love of self. I think I will buy this book for each of my adult children to read. Hopefully they can learn these concepts faster than the 52 years it has taken me! It is also a MUST read for leaders in business, especially if you are involved in Network Marketing. Really it is a must read f [...]

    7. READ THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW.I'm serious.I'm not really into management books, but this one was recommended to me by a friend and mentor who I respect immensely. She gave me her copy months and months ago, and boy do I wish I picked it up sooner.Firstly, this book is incredibly readable. Though it's about communication and interpersonal relationships, it's not a dry, non-fiction handbook. The concepts the book present are unveiled slowly, through a fictional story. Tons of real-life examples are use [...]

    8. كتاب رائع!مفيد ليس فقط للعلاقات في العمل، بل وللعلاقات بشكل عام، وخاصة العلاقات بين أفراد العائلة، من زوج وزوجة، وآباء وأبناء.أنصح به كل أحد.

    9. Really struggled with this book, and I see from the average rating that I'm in the minority here. The contrived fable format the condescending, read-my-mind closed question interrogations the shallow introspection the insistence on the reader forgetting what he or she knows about the phrases "in the box" and "out of the box" to adopt a new meaning just for this book long-winded (pages-long) pseudo-explanations of new concepts and jargon that only muddy the waters more, like this excerpt:“By bl [...]

    10. 7 stars. I’m on about 600+ books now that I’ve read as a semi-adult (am i bragging? probably, who cares?) - I have to admit that this one has gone into my top 5. I would have titled it as the “psychology of self-deception and the impact this has on relationships”. I was blown away by this book that was recommended by a partner in our firm. There is a sequel to the book called the anatomy of peace that’s on my bedside table which I’m going to be diving into very soon. As the book titl [...]

    11. A book that teaches powerful principles that I have already begun implementing to great effect in my own life. The principles we already know for the most part, and the general truths don't surprise, but The Arbinger Institute has blended and crafted them in such a way as to help us really put it all together. My favorite and most meaningful insight is that when we are "in the box" it doesn't matter what we do, how helpful or good we try to be, we will end up defeating ourselves. Forget blame an [...]

    12. I came into work one day, and this book was on my desk with no note attached. I picked it up, flipped it over, and read the first quote on the back: "Fascinating, thought provoking, and insightful! This book is a wake-up call to all those who think they're good with people"[return][return]Wait. What?! Was somebody trying to tell me something? Was this some passive-aggressive attempt at telling me I'm a bear to work with? I could actually feel my heart drop and hit my stomach. I hid the book unde [...]

    13. Excellent extended business-oriented parable on what happens when you ignore the instinctual feeling to help those around you. You either honor that feeling or you betray it. What happens when you betray it? It ain’t good according to the book. It’s self-betrayal that sets off a chain of events that leaves you feeling justified and others looking contemptible. You wind up calling that your character and living in a warped version of reality with warped results in all your actions. Worse stil [...]

    14. The premise of this book focuses on one's own limited view of people, relationships, and organizational dynamics and clearly shows them as obstacles to one's optimal performance and productivity. The Arbinger Institute reveals the new thoughts and debunks false notions around leadership. The best leadership and business books weave the concepts into a story rather than disseminate them in dry abstract paragraphs. Try as it may, abstraction always comes short of making us engage and anticipate th [...]

    15. I don't know if there's some kind of sub-genre for covertly religious business books, but I feel like there should be. I guess I read a book called "The Greatest Salesman in the World" or something when I was a missionary that wasn't even covert. There's also all the religious subtext of books like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change. Anyway, this book is in that category. What it does is reformulate some basic concepts of spiritual / ethical living in to [...]

    16. The core ideas in the book -- what the authors call getting "in the box" toward others and how to get out of the box -- are helpful. However, two things keep me from giving this book a higher rating.First, the story the authors use to introduce these core ideas to the reader could have been much shorter with higher impact. See Patrick Lencioni's business fables for an example of that. Second, two key terms in the book -- "in the box" and "self-betrayal" -- are not good fits for what the authors [...]

    17. Life changing way to look at the people around us and our influence on them.I have just gone through this book with another student and it has changed his life. He just apologized to his father for some serious stuff that he would not admit to in the past. He said he does not like his dad still but needs to treat him as a person because that is more fair.What better endorsement for a book?This is the fourth student I have gone through this book with and it is a great intervention in therapy. I h [...]

    18. A guidebook for life! This excellent book uses a fictional example to get you thinking "out of the box" in how you interact with others, both in business and in your personal life. This should be mandatory reading for every employee and family member. You find yourself in the shoes of the characters as they go through problems in their lives, realizing that we all have these same problems in our relationships with people. I'll be having my kids all read this! This book will help you, and everyon [...]

    19. Good ideas, and a clever way of communicating the ideas while keeping the reader engaged. A little hokey in parts, but it worked good for the subject I thought.

    20. Sách hay, dễ đọc.Tựa đề tiếng Việt là "Lãnh Đạo và sự Tự Lừa Dối" (mua bản ebook của alezaa có 15k còn tiki thì 20k, sách giấy thì tầm 50k)Tuy tựa đề có từ Lãnh Đạo nhưng triết lý của sách có thể được áp dụng vào nhiều mặt của cuộc sống thường nhật.Một số khái niệm:- Sự Tự Lừa Dối: Con người chúng ta luôn chối bỏ sự thật là mình đang có vấn đềẩn dụ bằng hình ảnh nh [...]

    21. A brief glance at my reading history will demonstrate that this is not the sort of thing that I usually read, but when your boss gives you a book as a Christmas gift, you’d probably better read it. The book’s structure is a little off putting. It’s not written like a standard work of non-fiction; instead it’s like a novel with one boring cardboard character giving another boring cardboard character a lesson about “thinking outside the box.” Apparently, this is the book that populariz [...]

    22. People should read the book. It gives a new way of looking at our behaviors. It gives you an option to look at your acting. By knowing them, you can gradually live a better life, run organizations better. The book does not give you answers for your problems. It gives you the truth.I love the "Box" concept and the drawing. The drawing delivered a big impact on my memory.While reading the book, I reflected, I got so many ah-ha moments. The book is my environment to open the other sides of the box. [...]

    23. Quite an incredible read. Requires introspection while encouraging growth in a reader. Though I picked it up initially hoping to continue my pursuits of being a capable and quality leader, I found the lessons in the book to be applicable to every aspect of my relationships with others. Seems like a good book to reference in moments where I am stuck or frustrated in my relationships.

    24. کتاب در مورد یک مشکل صحبت می‌کند. مشکل همه آدم‌ها، هر روز. موضوع واقعاً مهم است.با اندکی فکر و مطالعه می‌توان به این نتیجه رسید که انسان، دنیا را طوری می‌بیند که رفتارهایش را توجیه می‌کند. حرف نوی کتاب این نیست. کتاب می‌گوید که چطور، این‌طور می‌شود و پاسخ بسیار کاربردی و غی [...]

    25. A must read book for everyone who thinks he is right all the time and the other person is wrong. A book which serves as a compendium in resolving every troubled relationship in your life.

    26. "WHAT?" you say to yourself. WHAT is this fantasy-story-loving girl doing reading a book that demands shelving on the business/psychology shelf? And a valid question it is. I would never in one thousand years have picked it up if my dearly beloved husband hadn't read it first and told me that it changed his life. Changed it to the point where I am SEEING him look at the world in a different way. And when my husband, who has watched me read for 11+ years now and has never once asked me to read so [...]

    27. A truly remarkable book - read it. The 3-star grade comes mostly from my guess that the value of this book will have everything to do with what it mean to you, not anything integral to the book itself. It's a journey. I learned a lot.A couple of points:* The book essentially makes assertions about humans that would be hard to test. That doesn't mean it's wrong or not valuable, but it's very much in the "your mileage may vary" category.* I think that the basic insights may be pretty indebted to s [...]

    28. I thought the book had some excellent five star concepts and ideas but it was just a 3 star read. Although the book didn't unnecessarily rehash ideas as business books are prone to do, I felt that it was sometimes difficult to extract the principles being taught because of the story-style way of presenting the material. That said, I plan on implementing a couple of their ideas which I believe can be life altering.

    29. Interesting way of thinking that takes some practice for most people. For some reason, I tend to think this way most of the time. I do need to consider this whenever I start to feel my frustration levels rise with someone.
