Review: The Arbinger Institute - The Anatomy of Peace

Recently I read Leadership and Self-Deception and I thought that was an amazing book! Since then, I’ve told several colleagues to read that book. And they have. They also think it’s an amazing book so if you haven’t read it yet, go read it!

And if you have read it, there’s The Anatomy of Peace. The follow-up book that further explains the concepts. I just finished it.

The Anatomy of Peace uses the same story-telling technique as Leadership and Self-Deception. Again, the sense of the concepts is explained through relatable stories in both business as private life. It’s such a great way of reading this content because you can easily see how you can use it.

But where Leadership and Self-Deception followed a character who constantly questions the “box” theory, The Anatomy of Peace is about Lou. He is loud-mouthed and arrogant. And for some part of the book, this is okay because he questions the methods as well. However, on the second day he becomes passive. It’s like he stops thinking.

Overall, I still liked this book. I’ve learnt that there are different kinds of boxes. And that I have multiple. But I just think the previous book was better. Therefore, I rate this book 4 stars. On to The Outward Mindset.
