Outskirts Press Announces the Release of Beyond Illusions and Conformity Pressures: In Search of an Authentic Self by H. Randall Grumpelt, PhD

November 24, 2017 – Denver, CO and Roanoke, VA – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of Beyond Illusions and Conformity Pressures: In Search of an Authentic Self by Dr. H. Randall Grumpelt.

Humans are brainy, curious and assertive.  But we could not have survived as a single predator.  We lack strong teeth and jaws that can cut through muscle and bone.  We do not have menacing claws that can tear and render our opponent. Instead we are part of a family of animals that is wired to be group-oriented—to conform to pressures to protect our band or our tribe from alien forces.

We learn from day one how we should behave. Parents, schools, churches, governments, advertisers, movie heroes and those around us all provide codes and instructions. But must we be oblivious to these influences and only live the life we are programed to fill? 

Beyond Illusions and Conformity Pressures: In Search of an Authentic Self explores the barriers to self-awareness. Once we become more conscious of the hard-wired and learned pressures in our lives, understanding and freedom begin to blossom—revealing a fresh new perspective toward a more authentic self.

Throughout his career, Dr. Grumpelt sought to see beyond the everyday and usual answers. How is the self formed and controlled? What are the underlying reasons that people are troubled? How can they change? From his broad experience and knowledge, he mines the often-hidden wellsprings of human behavior. By furnishing dozens of examples from his life, his practice, and scientific research, he lends clarity to the complex issues of our motives and actions. Now, he shares his insights from biology, anthropology, the social sciences, and history that have led him to an understanding of the self that is both unique and penetrating.
