According to evolutionary theorist Robert Trivers, pulling the wool over our eyes isn't just an acquired weakness; it's wired into our systems. Whether we're lying to ourselves about illnesses, confessing to crimes we didn't commit, or planning unnecessary offensive wars, humans embrace falsehood for biological reasons. We lie, Trivers tells us, to help us survive as a species. This bold, often counterintuitive book holds our attention because its examples and lessons are so instantly recognizable. Fixing the cards in liar's poker.
