it was amazing
bookshelves: cognitive-science
Read in May, 2009

An insightful and thought-provoking journey through the psychological landscape of forgiveness -- what is risked and what is to gain, why it is difficult and why it is also necessary. As a psychoanalyst, Karen does not promote the typical and popular platitudes. Rather, he well describes the difficult and complicated terrain through which we all must navigate when we are wounded, or wound others.
