Illusions of Control: Striving for Control in Our Personal and Professional Lives

Synopsis

Illusions of control have become quite pervasive in modern Western societies, where modern science heightens the belief that people have control over life events. This book explores illusions of control in a wide variety of domains, and the author posits a practical way to minimize negative consequences. Such illusions can have positive consequences by giving people a sense of security. On the other hand, when the consequences are negative, the authors argue that there is need for adoption of long-term goals and short-term strategies.
