    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - A superb book, by a high quality researcher and author in Peter. I love his great Aussie sense of humour (we come from the same home town), the satirical wit, as well as his empathetic, polite and measured criticisms of the eccentric believers in gobbledygook. He tells it as it is without defaulting to personal abuse and insults. I really appreciated that, and I wish I could be more like that when I was confronted with the lunacies in years gone by of my time online being trolled on Usenet/Newsgroups by 9/11 Truthers and the like. It's refreshing to see such mundane well referenced historical, scientific and academic proven facts, logic, and truths being communicated in such an entertaining, compelling and psychologically healthy manner. This book really is a credit to Davis and the intelligence and clarity which he brings to the subject matter. There's a genuine personal honesty in how he tells his stories. THE PERFECT XMAS GIFT FOR THE GLOBAL... More > CONSPIRATORIALIST IN YOUR OWN WORLD. The world would be a much better place if more folks of Davis's caliber were running news media corporations. I little more reason and sanity would prevail everywhere. Well done Peter, and thank you making the effort! Your mum should be proud of this achievement, not least because you finally finished something!< Less
