A Mind of Its Own: How your Brain Distorts and Deceives exposes the mind's deceptions, explores how the mind defends and glorifies the ego, and illustrates the brain's tendency to self-delusion. Whether it be hindsight bias, wishful thinking, unrealistic optimism, or moral excuse-making, each of us has a slew of inborn mind-bugs and ordinary prejudices that prevent us from seeing the truth about the world and ourselves.
Mail & Guardian
"Fine ... catalogs [our] mental scramble in wry, spirited prose. Fine is ever entertaining on the bigotry and pigheadedness of those nearest and dearest to her ... [she] succeeds marvelously at a tricky task - exposing the psychological hijinks and hijacks that propel us forwards."
