From sexual faking to family secrets, Dr. Harriet Lerner reveals how the struggle toward truth-telling is at the center of our deepest longings for intimacy, authenticity, and self-regard. Drawing on more than two decades of clinical experience, Dr. Lerner articulates her rich philosophy and thoughtful guidelines about speaking out and holding back. With the passion, humor, and clarity that have become her trademark, Lerner unravels the lies, secrets, and silence (our own and others') that affect our lives and teaches us how to widen the path to truth-telling for everyone.

    " This is an interesting read. Lerner brings up all sorts of ideas that I hadn't fully considered. This book has a strong feminist tone and looks at the issues in a large cultural fashion rather than an intimate fashion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/24/2011

    " Having read, "The Dance of Anger", I decided to read another of Harriet Lerner's books. This one is good, too. And I browsed through several of her other books. I think "The Dance of Anger" is her best work. There is some repetition of explanations and theories in the other books. "

    " This is an amazing book. I don't normally drift towards self-help types but this was really a very readable insight into things that happen everyday.

    My favorite part is learning the difference between privacy and secrecy.
