Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Lewis Andrews has done something important here. Living honestly without being intolerant of others is definitely the way to live. He shows you how to accomplish that, and why you would want to. It is good for your psychological health and good for your physical health. He makes many good points in his book, and cites lots of studies on the subject, including some research by Julian Rotter, a researcher who studied the social lives of habitually honest people and compared their lives to people who felt that sometimes you have to be dishonest. He found that honest people attracted honest, loyal, trustworthy people into their lives. And dishonest people attracted unreliable, disloyal, deceitful people into their lives. Of course! The only person who wants to hang out with a dishonest person is another dishonest person. So by improving your own level of honesty, you increase the quality of the people in your life. This is but one of many sound conclusions you'll find in this excellent book. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works. I'm an expert on what works and what doesn't. Honesty works. You'll find out how and why in To Thine Own Self Be True.
