        Tavris is one of my heros now. Her and Aronson's book"Mistakes were made" is in my top 10 for sure maybe top 5 right now.

        I agree Mark, who has time for TV anymore.

          I particularly like her unabashed slamming of junk science. With a sense of humour to boot. Great stuff.

                      Darn it all. If someone finds the link again please repost it, I didn't get to it yet.

                      Mark, I read about dissonance so much here on SS I thought her book was required reading in order to post. That book and The invisible Gorilla are two thinking books IMO that should be taught to every High School student. Maybe even public school.

                      Thanks for posting that Barrett. The iPad is a real pain for posting links. Haven't tried the tapatalk thing yet.

                        Whoo hoo! Found it again by googling vimeo carol tavris.
                        Odd the APA would take it down. Maybe they didn't like the content.
