Scott, a college instructor, consultant on business and work relationships and professional and personal development, and frequently-interviewed author, examines lying in all aspects of life; how, when, and why people lie; and its history and cultural connections. She identifies six types of lies and liars, how to detect each type, the difference between fibbers and compulsive liars, and lying in everyday life, public life, work, and business, to friends and relatives, in dating and relationships, with parents and children, and to oneself, as well as whether to confront the lie.
