"Guilt with a Twist is highly recommended for community library psychology collections and for anyone who wants a better understanding of humanity's natural moral alarm." -Midwest Book Review..... Lawrence Staples bumps us up against the "tip of the guiltberg" and then guides us down into the murky depths of our beings where the raging, or occasionally subtle, sources of guilt are discovered - good, bad, and at times even indifferent. With a spirit similar to what moved Galileo, Copernicus, Socrates, Rosa Parks, and Susan B. Anthony to violate conventional boundaries, Guilt with a Twist: The Promethean Way suggests that "Good Guilt" is incurred for the sins we need to commit if we are to grow and reach our full potential as individuals, as well as a society. "'Sins' that benefit us," Staples claims, "could not be committed without a creative, Promethean spirit that is supported by an obstinate and irreverent insolence toward authority that is informed by a love of freedom." Staples shows us how guilt may not particularly feel so 'good' at the time of a transgression, yet in retrospect the perceived 'sin' that originated feelings of guilt often turns out to be of great value materially, as well as spiritually. This timely publication sheds light and brings valuable meaning to feelings that for ages humanity has deemed 'bad' and undesirable and will benefit many who suffer from life's existential pains brought on by divorce, separations, addictions, and a host of socially imposed rules that crush the spirits of those who challenge prejudice attitudes toward race, religion, gender, and other social norms. Lawrence Staples has a Ph.D. in psychology; his special areas of interest are the problems of midlife, guilt, and creativity. Dr. Staples is a diplomate of the C.G. Jung Institute, Z├╝rich, Switzerland, and also holds AB and MBA degrees from Harvard. In addition to "Guilt with a Twist: The Promethean Way," Lawrence is author of the popular book "The Creative Soul: Art and the Quest for Wholeness."
