How To Be An Expert Bullsh*tter (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

"To err is human, to forgive divine." - Alexander Pope (AKA a really big Debbie Downer and probably a terrible bullsh*tter)

"Honesty is for the most part less profitable than dishonesty" - Plato

It's no secret that lying can get you ahead. It's also not terribly surprising that if you get caught lying, you're in for a boat ride up a certain creek without a paddle. But is there some foolproof system that allows you to get away with your lie every time? Can you bluff your way out of any situation you find yourself in? Is there a way you can come out charming the pants off anyone you meet and even seem knowledgeable on any subject that comes your way? Well, of course there is. And by no coincidence, the answers happen to be found in my new book, "The Bullsh*t Artist: Learn to Bluff, Dupe, Charm, and BS with the Best of 'Em" (Adams Media, a division of F+W Media; July 2011). You see, if you want to really succeed in life, it's not about what you know but what other people think you know. Learn to become a jack-of-all-trades without knowing jack sh*t. Learn how to become a bullsh*t artist.
