I an not a sociologist or researcher so am coming strictly from a lay opinion. The conclusions were mostly taken from research with college students which made me wonder if the results would have been be different if the general public was tested. Each test situation made me think what I would do in similar circumstances.
I am a golfer so especially related to the tests with golfers. i.e.: the farther away one is from the ball the more likely you are to bump or place the ball in a better lie. More golfers would bump the ball with a golf club than would lift it with their hand. The questions were posed for their friends and themselves. Most thought their friends would be more likely to cheat than they themselves.
The book explored the likelihood of cheating when being observed, when in a group, after taking an oath not to cheat, when religious principles are involved or when money was involved to name a few.
I thought it was very interesting and worth the read. I think I will read it again soon with a pencil and paper in hand with which to take notes.
