To Tell the Truth. Save Us from Concealment, Half-truths, Misrepresentations, Spin and Fake News. 

ebook version only

Truthfulness builds trust and is central in human relationships, whether you are seeking to solidify a friendship or make new friends, or a parent trying to raise children of good character, or a business person or salesman trying to make a fair and reliable deal. If we were more honorable, the world would be a better place. Life is too short to live it in falsity. The best respect we can hope to achieve is self-respect. Nobody can give us self-respect. We have to earn it.

This e-book explores seven forms of falsity (lying, deception, pretension, denial, cheating, withholding, and delusion). For each, the book provides every-day, news-based examples and a discussion of the less obvious damage to victim and perpetrator. Then the book explains the causes and suggests preventions and remedies. A closing feature is a process and worksheet template for applying these ideas to ethical issues in real-world situations.

“intellectual power, discerning intellectual vision, an intellectually expansive repository, immensely intellectually refreshing, substantive cynosure, wide-sweeping ken, much erudition and thoughtfulness, sharp blade of Klemm’s piercing acumen, equipped with a very powerful intellectual camera.” Leo Uzych

“One cannot intelligently discuss the issues of conscious thought without including this book as part of the conversation … challenging and thought provoking, valuable insight that is often ignored”  Donald Galbreath, Ph.D.

“This is a thought-provoking and an engaging and largely jargon-free book that makes us realise that, while we can see literally billions of light years to distant galaxies or elucidate much of the co-evolution of light and planet again over eons, the one exploration we are barely beginning is taking place here and now with the study of our own minds. How frustrating, yet intriguing, is that?” Jonathan Cowie

“What sets this book apart from others is that the answer he infers provides a framework to allow us to consider how our minds are built and perhaps how they actually work.The book is essentially a guide to help us understand ourselves.  And it does this with forethought and insight.  The book is smoothly written with a keen sense of wit and understanding.”  D. Wayne Dworsky


This book will be of interest not only to neuroscientists engaged in the debate about free will but also anyone interested in the science of self-improvement, personal responsibility, and the development of a sense of self. Rebecca Gotlieb

Making a Scientific Case for Conscious Agency and Free Will

Many scientists say consciousness is only an “observer” that cannot do anything. Likewise, free will is an illusion. This scholarly book challenges such a view and goes on to suggest research that can test the hypothesis that free will can emerge from materialistic brain processes.

Released in Feb. 2016 by Academic Press.
