Acclaimed journalist Leigh Sales has her doubts, and thinks you should, too.

Donald Trump, the post-truth world and the instability of Australian politics are all examined in this fresh take on her prescient essay on the media and political trends that define our times. Almost a decade after she first wrote this personal essay, her message of truth, scrutiny and accountability is a much-needed pocket-sized antidote to fake news.

"A superbly stylish and valuable little book on this century's great vanishing commodity" - Annabel Crabb

A small book with a big notion

5

In this little book Leigh Sales has outlined a very strong case for asking questions about everything you hear. She has clearly always done this which is what makes her an excellent journalist and interviewer. She needs to understand for herself rather than take anyone else's word for it. Something more of us should do more often....then stupid conspiracy theories couldn't get a look in and politicians could not pull the wool so easily. Great writing.

Pocket-sized thought-provoker

Read this (appropriately) on a flight to Canberra. Leigh Sales's easy style does not detract from some powerful messages in this post-truth world.
