Publisher Comments:

Drawing on her clinical practice and pioneering efforts in workaholism Dr Killinger describes the personality traits and psychological, philosophical, historical, and familial influences that help develop and maintain integrity. She also looks at how integrity is undermined and lost as a result of obsession, narcissism, and workaholism. Richly illustrated with personal stories, Integrity offers a positive "how to" perspective on safeguarding personal and professional integrity and on encouraging our children to develop this vital character trait. Killinger concludes that integrity is not possible without compassion and makes it clear that doing the right thing includes doing it for the right reason.

Synopsis:

How to restore integrity so that social values can be upheld and family welfare strengthened.

Integrity is an intriguing subject for a book. Killinger, a psychologist, examines how we lose our integrity, which she defines by example. In so doing, she approaches the subject from a number of different disciplines, but she is most comfortable from her own perspective as a counselor. The book is flawed by a tendency to speak to its readers in pop-psych jargon, but I did get some inspiring messages from it.
