Does the truth not matter any longer?  Has the perception of reality become more important than the reality itself?  Post Truth examines these strange times when ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ are terms that are in use on a daily basis,  a major political party claims that climate change is a hoax, the President negates solid evidence to claim he is right, including on his inauguration attracting the largest number of people, and the media is so partisan that you don’t know who to believe anymore.  The book raises these important questions and offers a few solutions, the most important being calling out a lie when you see it.  The style of the book is academic (references, quotes from other books), that takes a bit of the joy out of the reading.

Read.
