You and your ego: how to develop a healthy sense of self without becoming an egotist--and how to see through that sense of self for the happiness of yourself and others.

How can you build the healthy ego necessary to be effective in life--yet avoid the kind of egotism that makes people dislike you? Don't worry; Dave Richo has the answers. His new book shows you how to navigate the tricky waters between egotism and selflessness in a way that avoids both extremes and makes you much more effective and loving. The key is to acknowledge your ego and to be kind to it, before you ultimately learn to let it go. As with all Dave's books, this one is full of examples from myth and religion, with plenty of exercises and practical advice.
