I came across this book as it was mentioned in passing by a couple of Internet marketeers that I respect, and they were suggesting that it was a must read.

The Science and Psychology of Lying - Psychological Book Review:
All humans lie, in fact they are probably one of the most deceptive species on the entire planet, and with their rather large brain humans are able to lie about just about anything.

But did you know that your parents lie, your teachers lie, your boss lies, your spouse lies, and everywhere you go half of what you hear is not entirely correct.
Psychological Abnormalities Considered - Book Review:
When it comes to psychology what's that famous line; What is Normal Anyway? Indeed, it's hard to say if anyone is completely normal, and with that said, who'd want to be of normal psychology anyway. And surely no one wants to be considered abnormal, and if they did, they probably already are you see?
50 Beliefs, Some of Which Are, Unfortunately, Embraced by a Large Percentage of the Population:
Guy Harrison's book "50 Popular Beliefs People Think are True" (Prometheus Books, Amherst, NY, 2012) contains 50 chapters, one for each belief category containing an assortment of ideas that many believe to be true. None is true, or at least there is little or no credible evidence for these forms of belief reviewed and critiqued by the author: How many beliefs do you hold that are assessed in this book? None, I hope.
