Überblick:Pressestimmen 'This essay is quite brilliant. (I was hoping it would be so I wouldn't have to lie.) I honestly loved it from beginning to end. Lying is the most thought-provoking read of the year.' Ricky Gervais'Humans have evolved to lie well and no doubt you've seen the social lubrication at work. In many cases we might not think of it as a true 'lie': perhaps a 'white lie' once in a blue moon the omission of a sensitive detail here and there false encouragement of others when we see no benefit in dashing someone's hopes and the list goes on. In Lying Sam Harris demonstrates how to benefit from being brutallybut pragmaticallyhonest. It's a compelling little book with a big impact.'
