Knowing vs. Doing

Consider one particularly striking instance. Some years ago, the New York Times ran a story about an author who had his manuscript, Telling Right From Wrong, accepted by a major publishing house. The publisher considered it a “brilliant” treatment of everyday ethics, but then halted publication when he learned that the author had completely forged several prestigious “endorsements” of his book.

Why do you think the author forged the endorsements?

  1. Hi!!!

    I think he did that to pretend he had all of this public support, so that his book could get a favorable publication. What do you think?
