We’re not in the Age of Information, we’re in the Great Flood of Information. And with so many clamoring for the attention of the world, some bad info is bound to slip through the cracks. In fact, in the Internet Age, misinformation can get around more easily than ever before. So how do you keep your head above the waves amidst the Great Flood and keep from swallowing any bad water?

Build yourself a quality life raft with the help of John Grant and Debunk It!. Not only a litany of prominent examples of bullshit, but a guidebook for improving your own bullshit detector, this is a manual for developing common sense for the modern world. Grant analyzes how misinformation proliferates and what to look for when presented with dubious-sounding “facts” by loud voices with an agenda to push. But he also warns that the greatest ally misinformation has is you, and he offers numerous examples for how we fool ourselves and how we can avoid doing so in the future.

Climate change deniers, anti-vaxers, and peddlers of bad science, beware. With a tome like Debunk It! on our side, your days are hopefully numbered.
