What's it about?

Like it or not, lying is happening all around us, from our friends and families to the news we consume. But not all lies are an act of deception, we also lie to please and protect the people we love and to feel better about ourselves. In this collection, you'll get into the human psyche to understand why we lie, learn how memory distortion causes us to lie unwittingly, and pick up skills in detecting lies. While we may lie for preservation and our well-being, you can also find ways to transform your life by bringing radical honesty and integrity into it.
