Just joined up, but here’s 2 timely books to recommend:
Harry G. Frankfurt “On Bullshit” - written in 2005 under GW Bush, but it’s got a whole new relevance. A serious work on the difference between lies and bullshit - I’m convinced Trump is not a liar, he’s a bullshitter. And it matters. (Frankfurt has a companion volume “On Truth”)
Daniel J. Levitin “Weaponized Lies: How to Think Critically in the Post-Truth Era” (previously titled “A Field Guide to Lies and Statistics: A Neuroscientist on How to Make Sense of a Complex World”) - a 2017 treatment of how to identify when people lie with numbers, with language, with anti-science, and with false logic.
