From the dust jacket- "Forgive Us Our Virtues is an attempt to show, in several cross-sections of American life, how under- or over-motivated persons evade their real problem, and reconcile themselves with their self-esteem by assuming virtues which they do not possess. It suggests that an overdeveloped or a defeated egoism is the scourge today among countless intelligent and sensitive persons."
