Summary

''Self-deception is one of the most powerful ideas in psychology, indeed, in human affairs, and David Smith'sWhy We Lieis an excellent synthesis of this crucial topic. The biology is up-to-date and accurate, the psychological implications are clearly worked out, and the writing is inviting and accessible.'' ---Steven Pinker, bestselling author ofThe Blank SlateandThe Language Instinct ''With an 'aha!' moment on every page, Smith's inquiry is stimulating and unsettling.'' - --Booklist ''Deliciously tantalizing, with morality as the Grandest Deceit of them all.'' ---Kirkus Reviews ''Why We Lieis written with snap, panache, and the sort of insights that stop you in your tracks.'' ---Howard Bloom, author ofGlobal BrainandThe Lucifer Principle ''David Smith has pulled off a beaut.Why We Lieis a wonderfully blended cluster of arguments to support the painful truth that we are a species whose skills at deceiving others is matched only by our ability to deceive ourselves.'' ---Arthur S. Reber, author ofThe Penguin Dictionary of PsychologyandThe New Gambler's Bible ''Why We Lieis a fascinating book about a fascinating subject. . . . rich with stories, anecdotes, and psychological as well as sociological analyses.'' ---Tamar Frankel, S.J.D.,The Human Nature Review
