I have just read that Jonah Lehrer, whom I have greatly admired and have extolled many times here at HP, has resigned from his position at the New Yorker, because he had fabricated quotes that he attributed to Bob Dylan in his eBook Imagine. And then he lied about the source of the quotes. And was caught in the fabrications and lies.
I am so disappointed!! He has literally been one of my modern day heroes. Now I feel that I have to question everything he has written. I would assume that someone would have called him on other lies before this - if they existed and if the right people noticed them. But how do we know that they (other possible lies) weren't actually there, but unnoticed?
When I told my son this news and related to him that Lehrer is the author of How We Decide, my son said, "It sounds like he made a bad decision."
Amen to that! Several of them, in fact.
