Overview

In many situations, we naturally assume lying is best - to spare others' feelings for example - but deception can have costly consequences in the long run. Lying in no way changes the reality of our feelings or a situation - it simply deprives people of necessary information to act.

Sam Harris is one of our generation's greatest thinkers, his work as a philosopher, neuroscientist, podcast host, and author helping shape many of society's most pressing conversations. In this long-form essay book, Harris demonstrates how our own lives and the society we live in could be improved by the power of honesty.
