Facts and Other Lies, by Ed Coper (Allen and Unwin 2022)

Neil's picture

This is a brilliant and timely book, a history and examination of disinformation and misinformation, which attempts to explain how the modern world is suddenly plagued by this prevalent and dangerous trend. While it's probably preaching to the converted, and won't be read by many of the victims or perpetrators of fake news, it's a helpful guide to how to manage and understand it. I tremendously valuable book, which should be widely read.
