The G8 summits show politics at its maximum of harmonius smiles and minimum accountability. Leaders of the most industrialised nations meet to announce that big problems are indeed big. They then go home and try to keep local voters happy.

Politics is about managing predators and prey. Evolution is not achieved by democratic global consensus, but by local individual action. So is the G8 useless? Certainly not. The time to worry is when politicians stop meeting.

How to Tell Lies, The G8 Handbook gives examples of how predators and prey, practice and detect deception in order to survive. Delivered in the form of fables, the book splits into two sections with advice on both the practice and detection of telling lies being given for each of a series of government departments.
