The Inner Self: The Joy of Discovering Who We Really Are description
Hugh Mackay has made a lifelong study of the attitudes and behaviours of Australians, researching who we are, and why we behave as we do, for nearly sixty years. In his potent new book, The Inner Self, Hugh returns to his psychology roots and turns his gaze inwards, bypassing our socially constructed identities to explore our deeper, more private sense of self. He invites us to find a path to psychological freedom by answering that most challenging and confronting of questions: Who am I, really?
