  The Liar in Your Life
   
 

The Liar in Your Life: The Way to Truthful Relationships focuses on lying and deception in everyday life, concentrating on why people lie to each other, why we allow others to lie to us, and how we live in a culture of lies that permeates society. In the book, I discuss the liar’s advantage, which allows others to lie to us with impunity, and I consider how children learn to lie and how parents teach them the craft of lying. The book explores how to cope with infidelity, betrayal, and mistrust. Furthermore, the book will help us acknowledge that sometimes the biggest liar in our lives is the person we see in the mirror. The book is designed to assist people in recognizing the lies that others tell them and that they tell themselves, and ultimately, to help them lead a more honest life.
