This is the original book that Anatomy of Peace is a companion to. I thought maybe it would explain some of the concepts in a new way, and while it did give some better examples, I definitely prefer Anatomy of Peace.
I also think the title doesn’t fit. The gist is that whenever there’s a problem, we deceive ourselves that someone else is the cause and ignore the possibility that our behavior or way of being could be at least part of the problem. It’s much more workplace-oriented than Anatomy of Peace, which may be one reason I didn’t care for it as much.
So skip this and please, please pick up Anatomy of Peace if you haven’t already.
