Born liars: why we can't live without deceit

Leslie, Ian

In 'Born Liars', Ian Leslie argues that, far from being a bug in the human software, lying is central to who we are. Using a vivid, panoramic style, he explores the role of deception and self-deception in our childhoods, our careers, and our health, and the part played by lies in art, advertising, sport, politics and war
