Product description

Review

Kaszuo Ishiguro acclaims "James Ball's Post Truth for its vivid analysis of how the business models and incentives currently prevailing in digital media render decent discourse all but inaudible." --The Guardian Summer Reads

"Worth reading for [its] dissection of one of the more annoying and insistent mosquitoes of our social and media lives."-- Financial Times

"A crisp, highly informative introduction to what ails the information industry and what can be done about it ... Ball's analysis of where the media have gone wrong is thorough and courageously even-handed" -- The Times

"Better than anyone I know, Ball explains how the economics of the web is destroying the possibility of financing serious news and raising the question of whether readers want a cautious fact-checked article when it is cheaper and much more profitable to follow Breitbart, the Express or the Canary and whack out clickbait, which is anything but 'boorring' ." -- Nick Cohen The Observer

"A timely and important book by one of the smartest of the new generation of journalists and thinkers." -- Alan Rusbridger, former Guardian editor-in-chief

"James Ball's analysis of all this is careful, methodical and thoughtful... It's a compelling look at what we like to think of as a modern phenomenon." --Reaction Life

"In the era of Trump, bullsh*t is spreading like a pandemic. In Post-Truth, Ball has put on his Hazmat suit, waded into the most infected areas of the world, and found a way to stop the plague." --Alex Gibney, Academy Award-winning documentary maker

"Fake news, post-truth and propaganda are all symptoms of a news ecosystem and political culture that incentivises clickbait and confrontation. There has never been a time when it was easier to spread stories that were untrue, and never a more important time to be able to sort the facts from the bullsh*t. James Ball has produced a timely and thoroughly readable guide to how to navigate a sea of falsehoods through a storm of hyperbole, bias and propaganda." --Emily Bell, director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University
