Summary
Ariely challenges our preconceptions about dishonesty-- we all cheat, whether it's copying a paper in the classroom, or white lies on our expense accounts. He explores how unethical behavior works in the personal, professional, and political worlds, and how it affects all of use, even as we think of ourselves as having high moral standards
