Our thoughts on this book

A book about the difference between liars and bullshitters. The liar is focused on intercepting the truth whereas the bullshitter is focused on manipulating the truth. The style was very academic although it could have been simplified. The size was deceptively small as it took longer to comprehend all of the esoteric terms. I could see myself giving this book to certain people but it’s not something I’d preach over and over again.
