3.0 out of 5 stars Good start without the happy ending
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 November 2020
This book had started really well and in fact had captivated by the time Zimbardo finished writing about the SPE.. When he went on to write about other experiments, I held on... however, approximately five pages of him ranting against the bush administration and the tortures that occured in prisons operated by US forces in Iraq and I decided to quit. I felt like Zimbardo was trying to force feed me his left wing views and I couldn't stomach it. By all means, buy the book for the interesting information about social psychology and the systemic effects on men's psyche but don't expect a happy ending.
