The 6 Most Ridiculous Lies Ever Published as Nonfiction

One of the few times Cracked has an article of interest. I figured book readers here would enjoy this piece. Learn how James Frey was not Oprah's first mistake at picking a bullshit book for her lists. Also featured in the article is Greg Mortenson, who by the way, was invited to speak at UT Tyler in 2010 back when I was still employed there. Mortenson was one serious disappointment and outright liar. For me, it is interesting and a bit sad to look over my notes for that speech, which I listened to before the expose blew up. Reminds me I probably should add a small update note on my blog to reflect later events.
