Why We Lie is an excellent essay in the Wall Street Journal by Dan Ariely, an Israeli professor of psychology and behavioural economics at Duke University. He has a new book coming out called The Honest Truth About Dishonesty. I read his book Predictably Irrational a couple of years ago and found it fascinating. He has a followup book to the first called The Upside Of Irrationality, which I haven't gotten around to reading yet, but I've just put it on hold at the library.
