In this book, Robyn Dawes critically examines some of the most cherished clinical assumptions and therapeutic methods now in use. He points out that we have all come under the sway of a "pop psych" view of the world, believing, for example, that self-esteem is an essential precursor to being a productive human being, that events in one's childhood determine one's fate as an adult, and that you have to love yourself before you can love another. Drawing on empirical research, Dawes systematically argues that none of the above is true and explores the debilitating effect these beliefs have on us. In addition, he takes issue with many of the treatment methods commonly used in therapy practices.
