Lies! Lies! Lies!!! The Psychology of Defeat

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

A compassionate understanding of lying often gets neglected when we become engrossed in our emotional reactions to a lie. Instead of judging lies morally, Dr. Charles Ford attempts to understand them. His book, Lies! Lies!! Lies!!! The Psychology of Deceit, is an expansive, provocative work, which spans 14 chapters, 287 pages of text, and 27 pages of references. Each chapter is worthy of a book in itself, yet Dr. Ford manages to distill the major issues in each one.
