We All Lie and Cheat, but Not Much
Book Review: The Honest Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone – Especially Ourselves by Dan Ariely
Having demolished the belief that most people are rational in his last two books, Duke researcher Dan Ariely puts to death the concept that “most people are honest” in his newest book, The Honest Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone – Especially Ourselves. Most of us think of ourselves as honest, and unlikely to cheat, steal, or lie. In fact, just about all of us are subject to these failings, according to the experimental data Ariely has amassed.
