Book Description HTML

What does it mean to say, ‘I am pleasure’ or, ‘I am love’, instead of simply saying I seek pleasure or I seek love? When we consider these statements in the first person present tense, how do we feel about them? Remember Ghandi’s famous quote:- ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. Being the change may include being the pleasure and the love we wish to see in the world. Twenty-one Levels of Self-Deception looks at these very personal questions of love, pleasure, beauty and grace. The book seeks to explore them within the broad contexts of human thought - always mindful, as the title suggests - that in arriving at 'final' answers we are often, if not always, deceiving ourselves.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tom Wallace

I have written essays for a number of years. My first book –Twenty-One Levels of Self-Deception – is essentially a collection of earlier essays. My second book – Three Miles of Rice Pudding – is part memoir, part non-fiction. A purely non-fiction version – Utopia Governance and the Commons – is also available. At present I am working on a small book about climate change. Readers can find electronic versions of my books on the website, Free eBooks, here:- https://www.free-ebooks.net/profile/770212/tom-wallace Readers can find my Amazon author’s page, with links to the books in Kindle and paperback, here:- https://www.amazon.com/Tom-Wallace/e/B0828988X5?ref_=pe_1724030_132998060 As well as non-fiction, I have written some short stories. These can be read on the website Booksie. Follow the link here:- https://www.booksie.com/users/tom-wallace-202564 Apart from writing, I draw and paint and do a little computer animation.
