Here is a book the very title of which is bound to start plenty of controversy. The subject always is good for an argument, those who stick up for white lies, kind lies ""just to make her feel good"", self-deception and all the rest. Cabot is well known, has had years of experience with religion and medicine, so he is in a position to know the effect of honesty or dishonesty on health, both mental and physical. It is the sort of book many stores will do well with -- it has a good chance of catching on for a real sale so watch it and suggest it. Curiosity and controversy are good salesmen. Arouse either or both among your customers and you'll surely make a sale. Bring this book to the attention of your older clientele who will remember his earlier book What Men Live By which has remained a classic in its field for years.
