Liar, liar. Jonah Lehrerp admitted to have fabricate material in his books

How We Decide - Jonah Lehrer Imagine: How Creativity Works - Jonah Lehrer Proust Was a Neuroscientist - Jonah Lehrer

What an arrogant, lying scumbag.

 

If you bought his book, Simon & Schuster would give you a refund if you have problem with it. 

 

"Mr. Lehrer, then a 31-year-old wunderkind of the journalism and publishing worlds, had fabricated quotes from Bob Dylan and recycled his own work from one publication to another, and he subsequently lost his prestigious position at The New Yorker. His publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, quickly removed print copies of his best-selling book “Imagine: How Creativity Works” from bookshelves and from online retailers." 

 

This should be left as a note to myself not to waste time on books by this writer. Once the trust is lost, it is just too difficult to read a non-fiction book and keep wondering what he said was real or not.
