Why do you believe what you believe? With cutting wit and a deft touch, Raden untangles the relationship of truth to lie, belief to faith, and deception to propaganda.
“Raden’s enviable gifts as a storyteller are surpassed only by the depth and breadth of her arcane knowledge. Fascinating and fun, could not be more topical. This is a smart, scintillating, tour de force of a book.”—Greg Olear, author of Dirty Rubles
“Enjoyably witty . . . . Chock-full of quirky anecdotes, this is a fun romp through the tricky world of deception.”—Publishers Weekly
“Raden writes with a blithe and breezy deftness, peppering her narrative with snarky but substantive footnotes.” —Booklist
