Debunk It!
Debunk It!: How to Stay Sane in a World of Misinformation
Debunk It!
We live in an era of misinformation, much of it spread by authority figures, including politicians, religious leaders, broadcasters, and, of course, apps and websites. With so much bogus information coming from so many sources, how can anyone be expected to discover the truth? In Debunk It, author John Grant uses modern, ripped-from-the-headlines examples to clearly explain how to identify bad evidence and poor arguments. He provides a roundup of the rhetorical tricks people use when attempting to pull the wool over our eyes, and even offers advice about how to take these unscrupulous pundits down. So if you're tired of hearing blowhards spouting off about climate change, history, evolution, medicine, and more, this is the book for you. Debunk It is the ultimate guide for young readers seeking a firmer footing in a world that's full of holes.

Profile Picture

Debunk It! Is about how the author, John Grant, feels about conspiracy theories and myths. He takes time to break down these myths in order to find the truth. In the book John Grant goes over lots of controversial topics such as “it wasn’t a plane that struck the Pentagon but a cruise missile.” What is the art of debunking you may ask? Debunking is breaking down a subject sort of like the “MythBusters” do on their television show. In the book, Grant debunks theories such as how some people believe that AIDS was created by the CIA.
