Exposes the pervasive and often hidden impulses that influence our everyday decisions. Countless acts of self-destruction and sabotage take place in our families, in our communities, in our circle of friends. Despite good intentions, "good people" do very bad things--often without understanding why. Ford guides us into the heart of the duality that unknowingly operates within each one of us: the force that compels us to give and receive love and be a contributing member of the community; and the "dark side" or shadow, the force that holds us back, sabotages our efforts, and steers us toward bad choices. Ford helps us identify the signposts for potential disaster, recognize the masks we wear to protect ourselves, and unlock the patterns of self-sabotage, allowing us to wake up from denial and become the person we always intended to be.--From publisher description.

Absolutely Excellent! For those who are ready to fearlessly look at themselves to better understand ourselves (and people in general) in a realistic, healthy manner. Life changing and second only to "Power vs Force" from David Hawkins. Follow up this book with "The Shadow Effect", in which Debbie is joined by Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson to further develop her topic. WARNING: If you are insecure, immature, or just not ready, you will react with anger, fear, disparagement...and once you have heard something, you can never "take it back".
