Jonah Lehrer Shopping a Book

Jonah Lehrer is reportedly shopping a new book. UPDATE: The New York Times has obtained a copy of his proposal: “On the cover page of the proposal, the book is described as 80,000 words long. The manuscript will be delivered in November 2014, the proposal says.”

In February, the author apologized for a plagiarism scandal last year.

Our sibling blog FishbowlNY has all the details:

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.
