Deceit and Self-Deception

Fooling Yourself the Better to Fool Others




Why lying to ourselves - and others - makes us human

We lie to ourselves every day: about how well we drive, how much we're enjoying ourselves - even how good looking we are. In this ground-breaking book, Robert Trivers examines not only how we self-deceive, but also why, taking fascinating examples from aviation disasters, con artists, sexual betrayals and conflicts within families. Revealing, provocative and witty, Deceit and Self-Deception will make you rethink everything that you think you know.
