2016 marked the birth of the post-truth era. Sophistry and spin have coloured politics since the dawn of time, but two shock events - the Brexit vote and Donald Trump's elevation to US President - heralded a departure into murkier territory.
From Trump denying video evidence of his own words, to the infamous Leave claims of £350 million for the NHS, politics has rarely seen so many stretching the truth with such impunity.
Bullshit gets you noticed. Bullshit makes you rich. Bullshit can even pave your way to the Oval Office.
This is bigger than fake news and bigger than social media. It's about the slow rise of a political, media and online infrastructure that has devalued truth.
This is the story of bullshit: what's being spread, who's spreading it, why it works - and what we can do to tackle it.
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 --Questo testo si riferisce alla paperback edizione.

The book is broken down by the nature of the B/S, who spreads it, why it spreads so fast, who profits but just as importantly, what features of our shared human psychology makes us not just fall for it, but seek it out and welcome it. These sections are really strong and make you consider exactly how to overcome our own internal biases.
The weakest section is what we as a society can do about increasing social divisions driven by groups of people increasingly dealing with their own limited world view. The book points out that fact checking, while important, is ineffective against people who just repeat proven lies (hi Donald), but other solutions appear optimistic at best.
Overall, an important book that makes you more aware of your information sources but also one that makes you challenge your own biases.
(PS the one star reviews here about climate change, Princess Diana, Jill Dando and 9/11 are all bogus and totally unrelated to what's actually in the book)
