Summary:Annotation. Whether it's calling in sick when we fancy a day off, or telling someone we love them when we don't, all of us have sought to deceive. Deception is as woven into the texture of human life as death and taxes and, in a world where face-to-face conversations are being replaced by email and text messaging, the opportunities to deceive are now greater than ever. Our capacity for self deception is just as alarming - most of us think we are cleverer, nicer, more attractive and better drivers than others think we are. But why do we deceive ourselves and others, and is it something we have the ability to control? If we wanted to, could we live a truly honest life? In this thought-provoking and entertaining book, Ziyad Marar throws a revealing light on these questions and shows how, by being more honest about our inevitable dishonesty, we might achieve a more fulfilling life.
