In one form or another, suffering pervades our culture. But why do we torture ourselves in so many areas of everyday life? Why do we work out to the point of exhaustion and pain? Why do women put up with men who abuse them (and men put up with women who abuse them) ? Why do workers endure terrible bosses? The author explains, in this book, why we tolerate these and other familiar situations that cause us pain and suffering and shows how people fall into destructive patterns of behavior that are mutually reinforcing. Ultimately, the author exposes the deeper psychological roots of these familiar rituals of self-torture, pointing the reader toward solutions for these self-destructive patterns. Includes references and index. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
