The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead

The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead - David Callahan A fun and interesting book that ends on an unexpectedly positive note. David Callahan is very honest about the lack of hard evidence in this field. While the lack of evidence makes it difficult to come to strong conclusions, many of the issues brought up in the various chapters seem relatively obvious in the culture. Whether this reflects the actual frequency of dishonest behavior or merely cultural perceptions is questionable, though I err on the side of believing that dishonest behavior is becoming more frequent. The recommendations include items that should be easy to accomplish, though I have a hard time seeing how they will come about without widespread public pressure in the public sphere.
