A review of Brad Blanton, Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life By Telling the Truth.
The first edition of Radical Honesty became a nationwide best seller in because it was not a kinder, gentler self-help book. It was a shocker! In it, Dr. Brad Blanton, a psychotherapist and expert on stress management, explored the myths, superstitions and lies by which we all live. And this newly revised edition is even worse! Blanton shows us how stress comes not from the environment, but from the self-built jail of the mind. What keeps us in our self-built jails is lying.

Give yourself the gift of "Radical Honesty". Paperback Verified Purchase. This book was given to me while I was in the midst of the most painful and challenging time in my life. I have always considered myself to be one of the "most honest" this belief was part of the OCPD reality I created for myself that fueled my self lies and my disconnection with those around me.
Within 1 chapter I realized the amount of lies I had been telling myself as I justified my "moralizim" and belief by being honest to everyone else but myself and in reality this dishonesty allowed me to lie to others with righteous indignation.
This book has assisted me in transforming my life while discovering who I truly am. It has brought me closer to my wife then I ever thought possible.
Why I’m not radically honest anymore
It has transformed my professional career and brought me deeper and more meaningful relationships with my family and my friends. While I do not think this book is the end all be all. I do think that it is a light in the darkness and a core piece in having self love, experiencing love, being present, and having a joyful life. I highly recommend this book and I have bought over 7 copies in the past month.
I see the negative reviews and I am grateful for their take on the book. That being said, if there is a chance that this book might bring you the healing, self love, and joy that it has brought me, my wife, my family, and my friends. Audible Audiobook Verified Purchase. Do not buy this on audiobook.
This is made worse by the fact that the narrator is the author. He continually makes errors in pronunciation and has to correct himself, coughs regularly throughout the reading, and every second sentence is from a different recording so the volume, tone and speed of his voice changes 2 or 3 times throughout each paragraph.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. To be honest, I wish someone edited this book.
I read it on my Kindle the formatting was screwy for half of the book and I exported the highlights after I finished the book. After going through my highlights I realized there is a lot of useful insight in this book. The biggest problems are that his thoughts are not organized and the author repeats the same points multiple times in different chapters. All that being said I gained a couple of takeaways that I will take with me for a while.
All in all it was def worth ten bucks for me! Radical Honesty is a fantastic book to shed light on how trapped we become in our own web of dishonesty to ourselves and how it affects everyone and everything around us. It is written in a casual tone, which is nice because it's the way you would talk to a friend. But he's also kind of nutty and some of his points were pretty out there.
Overall, I learned a ton from this book, and if you're trying to figure out how to live an honest life for yourself, this is a good place to start.
I started reading this book after reading an article written about Dr. I loved the idea of radical honesty being the sort who wants to maintain honesty myself. But reading the book, I rapidly got annoyed with it. I mean to follow the idea of radical honesty through to its application makes me want to call this book pseudo-spiritual horse crap.
Once I put it down, it was hard to pick up again. I did eventually finish it a couple years later, but it was not what I was looking for. If you want to do radical honesty, great, but this pseudo-spirituality is just not worth my time. This book is just awesome. Fun got boring a long time ago. In fact, if you have an aversion to super-radical and perhaps extreme ways of thinking, I recommend you only read 3 quarters of it. You can certainly avoid the Afterword.
There's some unconventional radicalness contained in those pages, but there's no reason for it to stop you from gaining immense value from this book. I happened to find the Afterward discouraging and it temporarily mildly tainted the content of the rest of the book for me. Regardless, this book has been a game-changer for me, and I recommend it, especially if you are passionate about pushing the envelope within your relationships and drinking in the intensity of what life has to offer.

It could be a painful reminder of how distant you have become from others and from yourself by hiding your truth. Being radically honest as a teenager was easy: I had serious social obligations only to my parents, and even those, at the time, I took less seriously than the task of forming my own standards through low-stakes confrontation with authority and received ideas.
As I got older, I found this more difficult, because of what some call karma: It drove me into therapy, as I felt no one in my life had so little a stake in what I did that I could talk to them openly.
Some of the things that drove me ever deeper into silence about aspects of my thoughts, my behaviour, and my suffering not special; we all suffer, and it is one of the best bases for universal human solidarity were merely specific entanglements, many of which eventually ended. But others are more like themes:. That honesty requires an appropriate context—relative safety—explains why Blanton suggests people interested in practicing radical honesty should seek out or form communities.
But Blanton never indicates that practicing honesty is risk-free.
In fact, he encourages us to own up to our cowardice in not wanting to share the truth about ourselves when we stand to lose something by it. Many of us are quite happy to tell the truth so long as it risks nothing, Blanton says, and this prevents us from relating to people as living and responsive beings, rather than as our fixed ideas about them, which is to say as a type of inanimate object.
Why I’m not radically honest anymore - Ben Hourigan, author
Sartre thinks we are responsible to ourselves and all mankind for all our choices, including the choice to act with cowardice:. Condemned, because he did not create himself, yet is nevertheless at liberty, and from the moment that he is thrown into this world he is responsible for everything he does.
But whatever our excuse, if we do something blameworthy, we are still really to blame: Dishonesty is one of the main forms of this evasion, and though it sometimes manifests as outright lying, it appears more often as incomplete disclosure, especially in the name of politeness or care for others.
Paradoxically, though, honesty can also be evasive. My greater interest in concealment, from onward, lay partly in realizing that we might want to confess something we feel guilty about mainly to relieve ourselves of the burden of carrying a secret or being unforgiven.
When we have chosen to do something that we believe would hurt others, especially if it would hurt them only if they knew about it, confessing in this way is also a failure to take responsibility. Asking someone we have hurt to absolve us, or confessing with the expectation we will be forgiven, is itself an act of cowardice.
The Book of Life which feels like it could be written by Alain de Botton, though he is not acknowledged as the sole author or even an author expresses similar thoughts in its article on Keeping Secrets in Relationships:.
Just as no parent tells a child the whole truth, so we should accept the ongoing need to edit our full reality. But I remain conscious that by subscribing to this view, I could merely be trying to get off the hook for my cowardice. Ultimately, Radical Honesty is likely to make you feel ashamed of yourself and wonder whether you are likely to ever have an authentic, whole relationship with any person other than your therapist and then, maybe not even with them.
But by challenging you in this way, it could change your life and your conception of yourself, even if at first the prospects look dismal. Ben Hourigan is a novelist from Melbourne, Australia. For news and book release updates, sign up to his email newsletter. View all posts by Ben Hourigan.
But others are more like themes: Some people may ask you for openness without committing to being nonjudgemental: Establishing that your interests diverge, that you are guilty of some moral failing or that you merely hold some intolerably different values, they may reject you as a friend or lover, leaving you wondering why you exposed yourself and your vulnerability to them.
Sometimes, there is dishonesty in our demand for honesty.
