Do you believe any of the following? Alcoholics Anonymous is effective. Hackers pose a grave threat to the nation. There's a hidden code in the Bible. Thousands of species have become extinct because of deforestation. Licking certain toads will get you high. Most terrorists are Middle Eastern. Wake up! You Are Being Lied To. This book acts as a battering ram against the distortions, myths and outright lies that have been shoved down our throats by the government, the media, corporations, organized religion, the scientific establishment and others who want to keep the truth from us. An unprecedented group of researchers -- investigative reporters, political dissidents, academics, media watchdogs, scientist-philosophers, social critics and rogue scholars -- paints a picture of a world where crucial stories are ignored or actively suppressed and the official version of events has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. A world where read dangers are downplayed and nonexistent dangers are trumpeted. In short, a world where you are being lied to.
