Born Liars
Ian Leslie
Born Liars (2011) uncovers the truth about lying and the important role it plays in our lives. Far from being some undesirable glitch in the human system, lying has not only made us smarter but saved many lives and become an essential ingredient to our overall well-being. In these blinks, you’ll learn all about the history and neuroscience of fibbing, why it might be impossible to detect every lie and how central mendacity truly is to being human.
The good word
“Your 15 minutes spent reading the summary might well be what encourages you to buy the book itself.“
“The summaries are actually pretty great; I checked out a few books I had read against Blinkist's take and they managed to get all the salient details in.“
“It’s about curation and condensing – pure human brainpower and field experts with a passion for explaining complex matters is the name of the game here.“
