  1. This might save you needing to read the book thersa discover videoAnd this is the cartoon version thersa discover videoA few years ago I read Predictably Irrational a book that remains one of my favourite books on Behavioural Economics The research reported in that book has just about everything going for it it is amusing, fascinatingly interesting, clever and fundamentally undermines the core dogma of our age, that we are economically rational agents acting purely on the basis of our own enligh [...]

  2. How can such a depressing book be so much fun to read Dan Ariely is an excellent author I ve read two of his previous books, and I haven t been disappointed yet Ariely combines a light hearted writing style, a solid set of psychology studies many of which he personally conducted , and a big dose of common sense Many of Ariely s findings are not intuitive at first glance but he is able to explain his findings and make them understandable to the reader.Ariely shows why we cheat but with a limit We [...]

  3. When I was in college I learned a bit about the Simple Model of Rational Crime which basically states that people lie cheat by rationally looking at the pros and cons and make a decision based on that Needless to say, this never sat right with me People don t make rational decisions, they just don t.In this book Ariely puts forth another theory, one that he calls the Fudge Factor The theory goes that there are basically two opposing forces when we decide whether to lie or cheat One of the forces [...]

  5. We all admit to telling white lies or cheating bending the truth and usually, several times a day How often do we admit to and even realize that we also lie to ourselves to the point of believing our own dishonesty Best selling author, professor, and cognitive psychologist Dan Ariely explores the topic in, The Honest Truth about Dishonesty How We Lie to Everyone Especially Ourselves Ariely instantly dives into thought provoking and interesting dialogue regarding the topic of dishonesty combining [...]

  6. The honest truth is, we are all dishonest.I want to share a real life scenario that happened with me just yesterday right after I finished reading Dan Ariely s new book The Honest Truth About Dishonesty.The situation An anonymous person at our office refills the office refrigerator with a dozen small water bottles, everyday They re stacked in the top compartment on their own, unlocked, unmarked, un anything They re just there Sinister, isn t it Next to that fridge are two water coolers that are [...]

  7. My rating is 5 because it is that kind of book which made me reflect upon my own behaviour On the one hand, because of some mistakes and the stories I told to myself, and on the another hand because it was a confirmation for the times I felt really bad, as I was aware of my action First thoughts when trying to predict what is the book subject, were that it s most probably a book about cheating in relationships and cheating for becoming richer Sorry to disappoint you, but it s not about cheating [...]

  8. I feel a little bad about the three stars I enjoy Dan Ariely s entertaining and informative books about behavioral economics and the many ways in which we are far less rational than we want to believe Exploring the topic of honesty from a variety of angles appeals to me as well, and true to form, Ariely highlighted many interesting aspects of honesty dishonesty contagion of dishonesty, how a sense of altruism and collaboration can facilitate dishonesty, the relationship between creativity and ly [...]

  9. Entertaining, eye opening, disturbingThis funny, fascinating, personal paradigm shattering book is in a genre I love, books that make me examine my thinking process, but this one caused me soul searching than any other I ve read According to the Simple Model of Rational Crime SMORC we decide whether or not to be dishonest based on a logical, mathematically calibrated cost benefit analysis, and we d all be as dishonest as we could be as long as it brought us a benefit greater than the likely cos [...]

  10. Either 3.8 5 or 4.2 5.This one is intriguing Ariely s writing is easy to follow It s so fluent, spontaneous and most importantly, he explained everything in simple words with examples experiments avoidingcomplex theories technical jargon He discussed psychology behind dishonesty And if you think about it you ll see that many fundamental cues behind dishonesty are accepted as normal behavior or treated as an open secret For example, in lab experiments when the result seems to be incorrect, we do [...]

  12. To be published in June of 2012 DWD s Reviews received an uncorrected proof advance copy by Harper.Dan Ariely s The Honest Truth About Dishonesty is a fun look at a serious topic lying Ariely, a professor of behavioral economics at Duke University, describes his simple experiments and details his results in a light, easy to understand way His results are often surprising and counter intuitive.For example, it is often considered that people are dishonest because they have calculated the risk of b [...]

  13. Loved the newest installation from Dan Ariely I m a huge fan so I m already biased, but this book was a breezy read and very insightful It was also disturbing and slightly distressing, as the main premise is that most harm to society comes from normal people each cheating just a little bit, then rationalizing it to fit in our personal fudge factor With connections to many great researchers, including Roy Baumeister of Willpower fame among others , Ariely presents a delicate balance between wanti [...]

  14. The Honest Truth About Dishonesty How We Lie to Everyone Especially Ourselves by Dan Ariely is a fascinating look at cheating and dishonesty Backed by research, Ariely provides explanations for the unethical behavior that seems to be endemic from Washington to Wall Street, the classroom to the workplace, and everywhere else you turn.It is interesting to see that irrational forces are often behind whether we behave ethically or not, and cheating and dishonesty are not merely derived from a cost b [...]

  15. A really great look into the current research into how why people cheat lie to other people and even to themselves The book is well written, well paced and I personally think the topics discussed are fascinating.I really like Dan Ariely s Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke, formerly of MIT books because His writing is easy to understand and has a playful entertaining tone His anecdotes always add to the topic being discussed unlike Daniel Kahneman, Nobel prize winner and me [...]

  16. I absolutely loved this book because of the author s interesting findings, easy to read style, and outside applications.The findings of cheating being dishonest might surprise many of us mainly because some of the things we do is unconscious and not robotic I won t provide any spoilers here, but if you are interested in any social behavior of human beings, then this is a book I highly recommend for you, especially if you want to know about human immorality Although many of the studies conducted [...]

  17. An interesting topic, though pretty familiar ground if you have any exposure to behavioral economics and or cognitive psychology Feels a bit rote, lifeless overall A straight survey of the material Takeaways Standard classical model of dishonesty cheating is SMORC simple model of rational crime which says we cheat when it s in our rational interest EV is positive, or expected payoff is greater than the risk of getting caught and the associated punishment SMORC is false Ariely calls his alternati [...]

  18. In all honesty, this book was a letdown The human propensity for lying and cheating should be a juicy topic, but Ariely manages to squash reader interest by mostly confining his experiments to sterile classrooms, where one group of student volunteers after another pencil in answers to one dull test after another, usually involving dotted matrixes, one dollar bills, and paper shredders When Ariely and colleagues DO leave the artificial environment of the classroom sending a blind girl into a farm [...]

  19. I read this book in one sitting It is a fascinating look into the inherent dishonesty that lies in all of us We all cheat Just a little White Lies, Pens from the office, travel expenses, etc But what is interesting is what allows us to cheat What factors are in place that let us choose to cheat and by how much we will cheat And how we trick ourselves into rationalizing our cheating It s a bit disheartening, and perhaps a bit relieving, to know it just apparently in our nature and that to control [...]

  20. A must read on Behavioural Economics Psychology Dan Ariely explained how we cheat and how we find excuses for all our little lies I was impressed by Dan s so called Fudge Factor , and other factors on his experiments that make us irrationally lie This book is absolutely fun and yet still informative.

  21. Dan Ariely so far never ceases to impress me in his quest to unlock the secret of human irrationality In his third book, he puts dishonesty on the centre stage I read it, I am hooked, I love it.First, I admire his passion and ability to narrate researches using layman language in a way that makes readers feel as if they re involved in the journey It makes me able to appreciate research you see something, no matter how trivial it is, that intrigues your interest, design the research creatively a [...]

  22. A practical book talking about how our honesty works in different scenarios Very interesting, to be honest.

  23. By Martin LangfieldIt is said that the philosopher Diogenes the Cynic roamed ancient Athens with a lamp in daylight to search for an honest man Dan Ariely, a professor of psychology and behavioral economics, uses modern research techniques for a similar quest He reports his findings in a new book, The Honest Truth About Dishonesty Diogenes said he found nothing but scoundrels Ariely is nuanced most people will cheat, given half a chance, but only to the point where they can still tell themselv [...]

  25. If you want to understand how large organizations empires, countries, banks, corporations, etc collapse, you should read this book.Ariely explains that lying or cheating is a normal human mental process, just like being funny or wanting sex If given the opportunity to cheat and not get caught, the majority of people will do it There are a few important factors that stimulate cheating and unlike being funny, cheating is EXTREMELY contagious in groups of people 1 The cheater does not feel the cons [...]

  26. Dan Ariely writes casually, informatively and convincingly on a topic that many of us will have pre conceived opinions and hypotheses about Dishonesty is part and parcel of being human, and as Ariely unravels, is often done for reasons other than being immoral rebellious As part of my own field, I have to read through academic psychology journals, and so it s a rewarding treat to have experimental methods told to me as if from a friend you will find no x number of participants were recruited in [...]

  27. Out of all the books I read I think The Honest Truth About Dishonesty by Dan Ariely was the most interesting one I learned many new things about myself with this book Like the example from the book about the coke and the money.It proved to us that most humans would be willing to steal something that cost money, which in this case the coke then steal the amount of money that the coke was worth 6 and buy it ourselves I put myself in this situation and I probably would have done the same thing Us h [...]

  29. Human beings cheat because we want to benefit from cheating, but at the same time still view ourselves as honest and respectable beings That is why we cheat a little when we have the opportunity to do so, and tend to be comfortable with the behavior when the consequence is one step removed from monetary consequence Moreover, we are good at justifying our behavior so that we can still be a honest being in our view Other factors that influence our misbehavior and cheating conflict of interest, dep [...]

  30. Book review Melissa HurtadoPeriod 2A Level PsychTo many, cognitive dissonance is a negative feeling, however few find it to be motivational In this book, honesty reveals itself to the readers and stirs a little regret in them I have always found me lying to myself whether it s telling myself that I m okay or that I will eat fruits for breakfast Men are born sinners and will sin out of innate behavior Dishonesty is a behavior conjured up to be disliked and shunned ever since it was of a morale Wh [...]
