Hi. Some of The Girls is a group of women who enjoy life, conversations and going out. Every month, we'll have a Tuesday Book Club.

This month we'll be discussing "Why Good People Do Bad Things: Understanding Our Darker Selves" with me as the moderator. We will meet at 6:30 PM which will give us time to order dinner and get settled, the actual book discussion will begin at 7:00 PM. (The 1.3 rule is in effect for dinner, every $10 base amount you spend you must put in $13 to cover tax and tip.)

How is it that good people do bad things? Why do otherwise ordinary people gamble, drink, embezzle company funds, become addicted to Internet porn, cheat on their spouse, or repeat the same destructive behaviors in relationships, at work, or in their habits? And, on a grander scale, how can we reconcile all of the pain and suffering present in the world?

In Why Good People Do Bad Things, James Hollis offers wisdom to help you acquire a new level of awareness to your daily actions and choices. Exploring the Shadow is important to our growth because it helps us repair inner fractures and explore what forces are working against us, and why. Hollis also looks at the larger picture of the Shadow at work in our culture in history, religion, organizations, and corporations in addition to its presence in our personal lives.
