My own review on Amazon
Accessible, encouraging, and empowering
I, like so many others, have gotten to know about Harry Petsanis from his courteous engagement with all on Twitter. He has also been sharing quotes and encouragement from and about this book, The Truth is a Lie. Reading the book (on Kindle), however, offers a better insight into the man behind the motivation. This, I feel, is very important. Harry’s sincerity has come through, but also his practical view of maintaining a certain stoicism in relationships. Given our present time, his views offer the kind of safety many of the modern-day readers require.
Just to share a couple of excerpts that can be called accessible, encouraging, and empowering, here are just a couple of good examples:
1) “We don’t love someone or feel great affection for them based on who they are, we love someone and feel great affection for them based on who we are. It isn’t that someone is exciting, it’s that we feel excited. They’re not interesting, we find them interesting. We don’t see them as attractive, they’re attractive to us. The feelings that we have aren’t about someone else, they’re about us.”
2) “Lesson learned: When you understand someone’s motive and their intent, you immediately understand the position they’ve taken and, more importantly, the position they’re trying to put you in. Never rush when ascertaining someone’s motive.”
Do read this book. I am quite sure, you would find it easy to read and benefit from!
