The book tries not too be too academic and arcane, but also failed to reach a mainstream, layman style. It is a good effort and touches an interesting aspect of our everyday lives. The references in this book might be a worthier read. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you have a lot of time in your hands.
Hypocrisy is so obviously hated because it exposes someone who wishes to take unfair advantage of another. In other words it is an inherently parasitic activity.
The author no doubt has other books in the wings: In Praise of Lying, Why Murder isn't always bad, Adultery - Think of the Positives, Is Deceit alway deceptive?, How stealing helps society by creating more robust security services.... you get the idea.
