Review

A work of engaging pop philosophy and accessible social science [and] a boisterous dissection of the forces jellifying our minds''Fierce and timely'.'Garvey doesn't pull any punches.''The author worries, rightly, that in losing the ability to argue and question intelligently we become more susceptible to the subtle and unseen skills of powerful persuaders.' Financial Times
