it was amazing

LYING is Harris's latest short-book / long-essay, much in the style of his previous "Letter to a Christian Nation". I found that he was able to cover nearly all the major aspects to the subject matter while maintaining a very short read, which can be done in a single sitting. I read it entirely in one day's public transit commute, and it came across much as one of Harris's longer blog posts.

Due to the short length of the ebook, it did leave me wanting more at the end of each chapter. Though, because of Harris's concise writing style, I can't imagine what else there is to say without becoming wordy or redundant. LYING is very well written, something I have come to expect from Harris, and I highly recommend it.

It is my hope that Harris will follow up LYING with another ebook that broadens the scope to include collective misrepresentations, opposed to the individual lies that were addressed in this one.
