    The deceptions vital to Bernie Madoff's $50 billion Ponzi scheme made lying an art & garnered new heights of media attention for the practice. Fortunately, not all liars are so malevolently motivated. Yet the fact remains that nearly every adult alive is affected by lying nearly every day, if not by being lied to, then by being put in a position where they must decide whether a lie is justified. This book examines every facet of lying, including its history, cultural connections, & motivations.
