We all Lie–especially to ourselves

A review of The (Honest) Truth about Dishonesty by Dan Ariely

You are a thief and a liar! You may not be a grand thief—you won’t take the office computer home, but the office pen won’t hurt, will it? You lie to yourself (that dress doesn’t make you look fat), you lie to others (just this one brownie won’t hurt you), and you cheat, although minimally […]
