Drawing on thinkers as varied as Augustine, Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud and Joni Mitchell, the author argues that, far from being a bug in the human software, lying is central to who we are- that we cannot understand ourselves without first understanding the dynamics of deceit.After reading Born Liars youll never think about lies – or life – in quite the same way again.
