Why I Suffer from Cognitive Dissonance
The artwork on this book by an LDS religion professor with a PhD degree typifies why I suffer cognitive dissonance. The author’s logic in the book is just as bizarre as the artist’s conception. If this lunacy were not so common I wouldn't let it bother me. Enough said.
[Post update on April 15, 2011. I mean no offense to this author. The significance of this book and cover to me is that when I was reading this book, hot off the press, I became conscious of the fact that this "story" that I had been studying for so many years (a favorite of mine) had too many loose ends for me and I literally threw the book hard against my bed. I surprised myself by my somewhat violent action, but it became clear to me that there was some deep dissatisfaction in my subconscious.]
