By the time she was in her early twenties, Bassey was a spoken word artist and traveling with HBO's Def Poetry Jam, channeling her life into art. But beneath the façade of the confident performer, Bassey's mental health was in a precipitous decline, culminating in a breakdown that resulted in hospitalization and a diagnosis of Bipolar II. In I'm Telling the Truth, But I'm Lying, Bassey Ikpi breaks open our understanding of mental health by giving us intimate access to her own. Exploring shame, confusion, medication, and family in the process, Bassey looks at how mental health impacts every aspect of our lives—how we appear to others, and more importantly to ourselves—and challenges our preconception about what it means to be "normal." Viscerally raw and honest, the result is an exploration of the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of who we are—and the ways, as honest as we try to be, each of these stories can also be a lie.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Become A Human Lie And Truth Detector Lying is an ingrained instinct. Humans learn to lie by the age of three and just keep on lying into adulthood. On average, people will lie 3 times or more in a ten minute conversation with a stranger or acquaintance. Does this sound unbelievable? Or maybe, you just don’t know how to spot the lies. There are many types of lies in this world: little white lies, big lies, small lies, omissions, exaggerations, and unconscious lies. Everyone lies at some point in their life. However, some people do it more often than others. It can lead to an immense amount of frustration when dealing with habitually dishonest people. It may be a teenager that you suspect isn’t telling the entire truth about their late-night out or a co-worker is constantly bragging about achievements that you doubt they completed. You may have a relative that always denies what they said at that last family gathering or maybe you just want your spouse to tell you what they actually think about your newest sweater. Regardless of the circumstances, there are often many everyday situations that make you want to know the complete truth. But how does one go about finding out if someone is actually lying? Most people can only successfully spot a lie about 50% of the time. Many people also think that only polygraphs can tell when people are lying. But what if you could become a human polygraph? What if you could tell if someone was lying simply by the way they said something or the facial expression they used? If this sounds like an appealing prospect, strap yourself into the lie detector's chair with the "Liar Detector." In this guide you’ll learn: * Psychological motives behind lying * Physical body language of falsehoods * Verbal cues to pick up lies in one's words * Subtleties to spot dishonesty in the digital age * Guidelines on when and how to confront the fibber * Strategies to both detect the lie and draw out the truth * Applications for confidence in lie detection and confrontation * And much more! By learning these new techniques, you can embolden yourself with new lie-detecting skills and become a real-life human lie detector to detect all kinds of deceptions from those around you.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The cult classic that predicted the rise of fake news—revised and updated for the post-Trump, post-Gawker age. Hailed as "astonishing and disturbing" by the Financial Times and "essential reading" by TechCrunch at its original publication, former American Apparel marketing director Ryan Holiday’s first book sounded a prescient alarm about the dangers of fake news. It's all the more relevant today. Trust Me, I’m Lying was the first book to blow the lid off the speed and force at which rumors travel online—and get "traded up" the media ecosystem until they become real headlines and generate real responses in the real world. The culprit? Marketers and professional media manipulators, encouraged by the toxic economics of the news business. Whenever you see a malicious online rumor costs a company millions, politically motivated fake news driving elections, a product or celebrity zooming from total obscurity to viral sensation, or anonymously sourced articles becoming national conversation, someone is behind it. Often someone like Ryan Holiday. As he explains, “I wrote this book to explain how media manipulators work, how to spot their fingerprints, how to fight them, and how (if you must) to emulate their tactics. Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I’m tired of a world where trolls hijack debates, marketers help write the news, opinion masquerades as fact, algorithms drive everything to extremes, and no one is accountable for any of it. I’m pulling back the curtain because it’s time the public understands how things really work. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.”

Editor: Four Elephants Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption—even murder and genocide—generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie. In Lying, best-selling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie. He focuses on "white" lies—those lies we tell for the purpose of sparing people discomfort—for these are the lies that most often tempt us. And they tend to be the only lies that good people tell while imagining that they are being good in the process.

Where must she look to find her true reflection and a life she can claim as her own?

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

“An interesting reported memoir about the power of honesty—not surprisingly, a surprisingly honest account.” —Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project “Some books change how you think. Some change how you act. Would I Lie to You? does both.” —KJ Dell’Antonia, editor New York Times Motherlode blog, and author of How to Be a Happier Parent Inspired by her popular New York Times article, “How Honesty Could Make You Happier,” award-winning journalist Judi Ketteler takes a deep dive into the hard truths about honesty, from the personal to the political . . . We’re incensed by politicians who lie and corporations that cheat, but when it comes to our own honesty choices, we often barely notice. So, what happens when we do notice? Judi Ketteler thought of herself as an honest person. And yet, she knew it wasn’t the whole story . . . How often was Judi engaging in the same dishonest behavior she was condemning in others? To answer that question, she started her “Honesty Journal,” and set out to confront her perennial fear of speaking the truth in a range of situations—including with friends, her kids, and even inside her complicated marriage. The result is a timely consideration of the joys and pains of truth in a world that seems committed to lying. “Great for generating discussion on the subject of authenticity and thinking through tough questions.” —Library Journal “Would I Lie to You? is filled with so many fresh insights and proactive solutions that it could pass for a masterclass on honesty.” —Camille Pagán, bestselling author of I’m Fine and Neither Are You “Candor, humor, and wry guidance for developing positive, forthright relationships with ourselves and others.” —Foreword Magazine
