    '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 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?
