Summary
Charles Seife takes us deep into the online information jungle and cuts a path through the trickery, fakery, and cyber skullduggery that the internet enables; he provides a much-needed tool kit to help you separate fact from fantasy in the digital world. Using his trademark wit, skepticism, and keen analytic skills, Seife addresses the problems that face each of us every time we turn on our computers and Google our most recent medical symptoms, read a candidate's tweet, fact-check something on Wikipedia, or start an online relationship. Let the clicker beware. -- from book jacket
