The Half-Truth High:
Breaking the Illusions of the Most Powerful Drug in Life & Business
by Kevin J. Fleming ’94, ’96M.A., ’99Ph.D. (iUniverse)
The self-help industry and books about personal and business success, the author believes, offer little more than tips and tools that sound reasonable but actually deny reality. These tips, he notes, too often don’t lead to lasting improvement or success.
“I’ve come to believe that psychology is full of half-truths,” Fleming, himself a psychologist, writes. In this book, he attempts to offer help to those “whose goal is actually change” by pointing out how real change means unlearning half-truths and finding “real solutions to their problems.”
