Why Good People Do Bad Things

By: James Hollis


2 in stock (can be backordered)

SKU: 9781592403417 Categories: ,


How is it that good people do bad things? Why do otherwise ordinary people gamble, drink, embezzle company funds, become addicted to Internet porn, cheat on their spouse, or repeat the same destructive behaviors in relationships, at work, or in their habits? And, on a grander scale, how can we reconcile all of the pain and suffering present in the world?

In Why Good People Do Bad Things, James Hollis provides a penetrating understanding of the discrepancies that lie between our professed values and our frequently destructive actions, and offers wisdom to help us acquire a new level of awareness in our daily actions and choices. Exploring the Shadow is important to our growth because it helps us repair inner fractures and explore what forces are working against us and why.

In addition to its presence in our personal lives, Hollis looks at the larger picture of the Shadow at work in our culture–in history, religion, our organizations, and corporations.
