This book received phenomenal coverage in hardback, including an extended author interview by Philip Schofield and Fern Britton on "This Morning" and a feature by John Humphrys in the "Daily Mail". It is full of real life stories from real people. It is from the bestselling co-author of "Beyond Coincidence", called 'a first-rate book' by the "Observer". We tell an average of six lies a day, psychologists believe. In this witty and engaging book Brian King unravels the full extent of the deceit that surrounds us, from politicians, ad-men, journalists and salesmen to our partners and children - and the lies we tell ourselves to preserve our precious self-esteem. He looks at some of the great liars of history, reveals how scientists can observe the brain as it suppresses the awkward truth in favour of the convenient lie, and advises on the best techniques for spotting a lie through body language and verbal slips.
