It's human nature to lie; we all do it. From scandalous headlines to little white lies, (Dis)Honesty The Truth About Lies explores the complex impact dishonesty has on our lives and everyday society. Interweaving psychological experiments from celebrated behavioral economist Dan Ariely with personal stories from individuals affected by the unraveling of their lies, Ariely and a team of scientists uncover our propensity to be dishonestsometimes even unknowingly. What's revealed is a fascinating look at the forces behind our collective behavior and the many truths behind lies.
