Using the sweat lodge ceremonies, Hokee teaches Glory many of the shaman rituals he uses in his investigations. The search leads through Hell's Canyon, underground rivers, the River of No Return, treacherous cinder cone lava flats, and ultimately to an island in the Caribbean where they both nearly lose their lives.

The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed. Through an entertaining and highly instructive story, this audiobook explains what self-deception is, how people get trapped in it, how it undermines relationships and organizational achievement, and -- most importantly -- the surprising way to solve it.
