I heard about this book through an interview with the author plus advertisements and recommedations through and goodreads. I enjoy well-written nonfiction which interprets current social science research.
This book answers a question of who is more dishonest: bankers or politicians. It explores when altruism may contribute to dishonesty. There really is a what-the-hell effect. We poor humans, how easy it is for us to rationalize our impulses!
I recommend this to all readers, and I think this book is an excellent choice for book club discussions.
