This revised and expanded edition includes a new chapter on how others have used this book in their organizations. Through a relatable story about a man facing challenges on the job and in his family, this groundbreaking book exposes the fascinating ways we can blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts at success and happiness. It then illuminates the counterintuitive ways you can dramatically improve both your results and your relationships.
What if, in our conflicts with others, there is something we want more than solutions? What if, individually and collectively, we systematically misunderstand the causes of our conflicts? And what if, therefore, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? These are among the important questions explored in The Anatomy of Peace, an international bestseller that instills hope and inspires reconciliation. Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and even global conflicts.
Educated in philosophy at Yale, Dr. C. Terry Warner has devoted a lifetime to the study of self-deception. In a steady stream of lectures, papers, and seminars over nearly three decades, Dr. Warner presented the results of his academic inquiry into the foundations of human behavior. The papers that make up this collection have been assembled for the use of the serious student of Arbinger’s rich and robust philosophical underpinnings.
This book, written to facilitate personal discovery, explains for a general audience the solution to an age-old problem in the human sciences–the paradox of self-deception.

This accessible and thought-provoking book outlines the flow of that discovery and illuminates the choice we face in every moment—the choice that determines our entire experience.

The art and structure of both teaching and learning are widely misunderstood. They happen at a level much deeper than typical educational efforts suppose. Understanding this deeper level reveals a new way to learn, teach, and administrate educational institutions.
This book shows how resistance, in all its subtle forms, creeps into and undermines intervention efforts. When others resist our help, there is a way to preserve a deep awareness of their humanity. This book is written to help the general reader improve their intervention efforts, whether at home, at school, in a formal treatment program, or within the context of informal relationships.
Moment to moment we make a choice that determines our entire experience: we choose how we see and respond to the people around us. Depending on how we choose, we either blind ourselves to reality and make our own and others’ lives worse or obtain a clarity that equips us to make everything better. This book is about understanding the nature and consequences of this choice. It is about learning to choose well.

Included publications are The Choice, Angels Among Us, Choose Well, The Oxford Papers, The Choice in Teaching and Education, and The Choice in Intervention. Collectively, these works explore the depths of Arbinger theory and illuminate the very practical application of this work.
This book outlines in a robust and persuasive way the logic of self-betrayal--the issue at the heart of the problem of self-deception.
