LYING, for free

A science communicator and writer at The New Yorker, Jonah Lehrer has destroyed his career by…. lying.

Lehrer fabricated quotes attributing them to Bob Dylan and oddly enough, plagiarised his own work, lifting passages from his blog for his book Imagine: How Creativity Works.

Sam Harris has written a short book on the subject of lying, called it Lying and in honour of Lehrer, has offered it for free as a download and for the Kindle. Should be a interesting read!

It’s only there for the rest of the week, so get downloading and tell your friends!
