Product Description

In Born Liars, Ian Leslie takes the reader on an exhilarating tour of ideas that brings the latest news about deception back from the frontiers of psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy, and explores the role played by lies - both black and white - in our childhoods, our careers, and our health, as well as in advertising, politics, sport and war. 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. Born Liars is crammed with gripping stories. We join a young doctor on the beach at Anzio in 1944 as he discovers that the best way to help his wounded patients is to lie to them, to peer inside the mind of Saddam Hussein, hear about a spy who beat a lie detector, and meet a man found guilty of cheating his way to a million pounds on national TV.
