In this dialogue between a famous atheist and a former radical, Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz invite you to join an urgently needed conversation: Is Islam a religion of peace or war? Is it amenable to reform? Why do so many Muslims seem drawn to extremism? The authors demonstrate how two people with very different views can find common ground.
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.

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.
