I dont think it comes down to expecting absolute truth, how many people wouldn't have purchased the book if he had been truthful? (I think a lot more would have purchased it if he had truthful, but that would have been there choice)
For me his book goes way beyond embellishment. Its like the story i read about war correspondents pretending they were there when they were back home getting bits and pieces from the web.
