    Description
    In The Lucifer Effect, the award-winning and internationally respected psychologist, Philip Zimbardo, examines how the human mind has the capacity to be infinitely caring or selfish, kind or cruel, creative or destructive. He challenges our conceptions of who we think we are, what we believe we will never do - and how and why almost any of us could be initiated into the ranks of evil doers. At the same time he describes the safeguards we can put in place to prevent ourselves from corrupting - or being corrupted by - others, and what sets some people apart as heroes and heroines, able to resist powerful pressures to go along with the group, and to refuse to be team players when personal integrity is at stake. Using the first in-depth analysis of his classic Stanford Prison Experiment, and his personal experiences as an expert witness for one of the Abu Ghraib prison guards, Zimbardo's stimulating and provocative book raises fundamental questions about the nature of good and evil, and how each one of us needs to be vigilant to prevent becoming trapped in the 'Lucifer Effect', no matter what kind of character or morality we believe ourselves to have. The Lucifer Effect won the William James Book Award in 2008.

    Insightful

    Being from a non-psychology field it'd have been pretty hard to read & understand the reason/s why people turn evil at times hadn't Mr.Zimbardo simplified things. Liked this book a lot for the content, narration and clarity. Well written and clear in it's understanding of the subject. A must read for those trying to know the depths of the human mind.

    Not rating the content but the print quality

    Haven't read the book, as a matter of fact, haven't even started it. The quality of the paper and the cover aren't up to the mark. The paper and the cover are too thin making the book feel seem fragile while holding it.
