Lying -- An essay by Sam Harris

A short time ago offered a copy of Lying for free and, as you know, I do love things that are free.  

Today I read the essay.  At the end I felt that Harris had taken all the thoughts I'd every had about truth and untruth and found a way to connect them all in a coherent manner.  It did not take long to read.  It was written in a comfortable, conversational way.

Most helpful was his definition of truth:  The intent to communicate honestly is the measure of truthfulness.

This essay is available at if you would like to read it.  It is truly worth the time.
