    Book review: Why We Lie by Dorothy Rowe

    Exceptional investigation of why people lie and how this affects individuals, families and larger bodies such as organisations and states. We lie because we can, because it is easier than being humiliated and because we are vain, but also because it is easier than destroying what we think of as our essential self. Truth on the other hand is not as easy as a lie, or as consistent and we are frequently unable to see the truth that is there. Dorothy Rowe explores how we decide what is true and whether we are willing to give up lying. Published by Fourth Estate, London (2011)
