Jonah Lehrer is back. Or at least, he’s trying. According to Slate, Lehrer — who was repeatedly busted for lying, then said he only did so because he’s smarter than everyone else — is currently shopping a book about the science of love.
While Lehrer deserves a fifth chance, we imagine that any publishing house that agrees to go in with him will do so with a certain amount of worry. Then again, Lehrer’s book could end up being a huge hit, because you can never doubt the public’s ability to consume anything produced by a celebrity, no matter how loose that word is defined.
However, if Lehrer’s love book gets published, we’re going to compare his words to our copy of The Notebook. You know, just to be sure.
