Sam Harris’ Lying Is Free the Rest of This Week

In response to Jonah Lehrer‘s fall from grace in which he was caught self-plagiarizing and weeks later caught making up a Bob Dylan quotation for his book, Sam Harris writes:

I consistently meet smart, well-intentioned, and otherwise ethical people who do not seem to realize how quickly and needlessly lying can destroy their relationships and reputations.

Since it’s relevant to the situation, Harris is offering his book Lying free to download for the rest of this week. I really liked it — get it while you can!
