What does science tell us about why people lie?
Who lies more, women or men?
Why do smart people get fooled?
How you can spot a sociopath and how to protect yourself.
Science Writers in New York invites you to spend an evening with New York Times contributor Abby Ellin. She will discuss her latest book, Duped: Double Lives, False Identities and the Con Man I Almost Married (Hachette Book Group, January 15, 2018).
Kirkus Reviews said her book “offers insight into the socially and psychologically complex nature of deceit as well as the choices she made as a duped woman. Lively, provocative reading.”
Abby will talk about her book with SWINY co-chair David Levine, and answer questions about content and craft, and sign books, which will be sold at a discount.
