Truth : A Brief History of Total Bullsh*t Paperback / softback


'TOM PHILLIPS IS A VERY CLEVER, VERY FUNNY MAN' Greg JennerThis is a book about TRUTH - and all the ingenious ways, throughout history, that we've managed to avoid it. We live in a 'post-truth' age, we're told. The US has a president who openly lies on a daily basis (or who doesn't even know what's true, and doesn't care).

The internet has turned our everyday lives into a misinformation battleground.

People don't trust experts any more. But was there ever really a golden age of truth-telling?

As the editor of the UK's leading independent fact-checker, Tom Phillips deals with complete bollocks every day.

Here, he tells the story of how we humans have spent history lying to each other - and ourselves - and asks an important question: how can humanity move towards a truthier future?PRAISE FOR HUMANS: A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW WE F*CKED IT ALL UP:'F*cking brilliant' Sarah Knight, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck'Very funny' Mark Watson, comedian'In dark times, it's reassuring to learn that we've always been a bunch of clueless f*cking nitwits' Stuart Heritage, Don't Be a Dick, Pete'A light-touch history of moments when humans have got it spectacularly wrong...
