St. Louis County Library Foundation's Pacesetter Author Series presents bestselling author Dan Ariely for a discussion of "The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone--Especially Ourselves." The event will be held on Wednesday, June 20, at 7:00 p.m. at Library Headquarters, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
The program is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Books for signing will be available at the event from Barnes & Noble.
With his game-changing New York Times bestsellers "Predictably Irrational" and "The Upside of Irrationality," behavioral economist Dan Ariely established himself as the go-to authority when it comes to understanding how irrational behavior shapes every part of our lives in surprising ways.
Ariely has long been fascinated with dishonesty and cheating, and now he explores these timely topics in his latest book, "The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone--Especially Ourselves." With his unique blend of intellectual curiosity, groundbreaking research, and down-to-earth appeal, Ariely investigates why we cheat, what causes our dishonest behavior, and how we can curb and limit it.
Enlightening, tremendously entertaining, and packed with revealing information, "The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty" leads us towards a new awareness of our all-too-human behavior.
New York Times bestselling author Dan Ariely is the James B. Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics at Duke University, with appointments at the Fuqua School of Business, the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, The Medical School, and the Department of Economics. Ariely's work has been featured widely in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and Boston Globe among others. He has also made numerous appearances on CNN, CBS, and NPR.
