As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption - even murder and genocide - generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie. In Lying, bestselling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie.
Not bad but not great

although I respect the writing and the "point" of this, it was more an essay than a book and therefore I believe it was overpriced. Sam Harris is an excellent writer and a great mind but this was WAY too short.
