Bridge's collation of psycho-neurology of the self, the intra and interpersonal effects of self-description and the challenges that we face when we misjudge the mental states of both ourselves and others is interesting and timely. She weaves clinical and popular cultural references to illustrate the narratives that we tell ourselves and each other, but ultimately questions the adverse consequences of psychotherapy practice itself, which may be harmful.
The Significance Delusion is a book for our time when the autonomy of the self is prized and the self, so central in self-help.
