The Lucifer Effect

Examines how the human mind has the capacity to be infinitely caring or selfish, kind or cruel, creative or destructive. The author challenges our conceptions of who we think we are, what we believe we will never do - and how and why almost any of us could be initiated into the ranks of evil doers.
