“A lively and digestible book…Perhaps the book’s most important point advises how to combat destructive delusions.” - Matthew Hutson, Wall Street Journal.
“Ingenious…A passionate, often counterintuitive, disturbingly convincing addition to the why-people-believe-stupid-things genre.” - Kirkus Reviews.
