TOM PHILLIPS IS A VERY CLEVER, VERY FUNNY MAN Greg Jenner This is a book about TRUTH – and all the ingenious ways, throughout history, that weve managed to avoid it. We live in a post-truth age, were told. The US has a president who openly lies on a daily basis (or who doesnt even know whats true, and doesnt care). The internet has turned our everyday lives into a misinformation battleground. People dont trust experts any more. But was there ever really a golden age of truth-telling? As the editor of the UKs leading independent fact-checker, Tom Phillips deals with complete bollocks every day. Here, he tells the hilarious 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: This book is brilliant. Utterly, utterly brilliant Jeremy Clarkson, author of The World According to Clarkson F*cking brilliant Sarah Knight, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck Very funny Mark Watson, author of Eleven In dark times, its reassuring to learn that weve always been a bunch of clueless f*cking nitwits Stuart Heritage, author of Dont Be a Dick, Pete A light-touch history of moments when humans have got it spectacularly wrong… Both readable and entertaining Telegraph
