Summary
The book is a reaction tocontemporary trends. It describes arevolutionary way of treating truthfulness, honesty and deception. Does ourcivilization really possess an optimistic bias towards truthfulness?<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> Most people are offended by overtlies and some are duped by them some of the time.<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> Even so, we oil our social gears with whitelies: not all people - some don't; others cause hurt; yet others sufferguilt. The book shows how to drawmaximum information from assertions - whether lying or misguided orsincere. It shows how to use them toadvantage by looking to the reality that underlies the words that are used, andby noticing the way they are used: wordshave a real meaning that is opposite to their intended meanings.<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> We reflect on this in the words we use.A mainstream warning issupported, namely that our civilization is in fact endangered.<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> False communications threaten us, especiallyin our ever increasing power over the world, through science.<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> Radiative and chemical emissions harmus. The book is well informed withregard to waste in science and industry and to dangers for public safety.<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> The treatment shows how individual survivalis promoted by avoiding the ever more evident pitfalls.<spanstyle='mso-spacerun:yes'> Perhaps, by this means, our final hour can bepostponed
