Surrounded by Liars

Studies suggest two people who have never met before will tell three lies within the first five minutes. Astounding. But why?

How to Stop Half-Truths, Deception and Storytelling Ruining Your Life

Why do we choose to lie even when we know it’s wrong? To protect the people we love? To paint ourselves in a better light? To win short-lived praise? Or, are there simply far more obscure reasons behind why we lie?

In Surrounded by Liars, Thomas Erikson unpacks the psychological reasons behind why we lie, and reveals the impact lying has on our relationships.
