The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty Summary

Who Should Read “The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty”? And Why?

If you consider yourself a good and honest person, then let Dan Ariely and his exceptional book, The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty, burst your bubble: you are not, have never been, nor will ever be one.

If you want to learn why and you are a psychology student, then this book is a good place to start – but be sure to check out Dan Ariely’s other books as well (we’ve summarized all of them just for you: The Upside of Irrationality, Irrationally Yours, Payoff, Predictably Irrational).

But please read this one especially if you are a student of economics, because, well, you are taught wrong about practically everything.
