Jonah Lehrer's Fall from Grace

Jul 31, 2012

We read, with great disappointment, about Jonah Lehrer's resignation from the The New Yorker yesterday after admitting that he published fabricated Bob Dylan quotes in his best-selling book, “Imagine."  Jonah was the very first guest on Word of Mouth’s pilot broadcast in March of 2008. His book "Proust Was a Neuroscientist," was on the best-seller list and praised for turning complex scientific theories into accessible prose. Jonah was then 26, dubbed the next big thing and living in Concord.
