It's about how we lie, how we justify doing it, how we respond when other people lie to us, how to tell when someone is lying, how we lie to ourselves, and more.
Books by Gini Graham Scott
The Truth About Lying reveals what everybody does but nobody likes to talk about -- or at least they didn't used to when the book was first published. But now lying is much more common.
The book features ordinary, respectable people who describe how and why the lie -- from lying to get ahead on the job to lying for advantage in personal relationships.
The book also features a history of lying, and looks at lying in other cultures. It includes a discussion of lying as a survival mechanism that even animals use.
