How did we end up with a world where beliefs are mass-produced by lobbyists and PR firms? Could Google or Facebook swing elections? Are new kinds of persuasion making us less likely to live happy, decent lives in an open, peaceful world?Is it too late, or can we learn to listen to reason again? The Persuaders is a call to think again about how we think now.
'A work of engaging pop philosophy and accessible social science [and] a boisterous dissection of the forces jellifying our minds' * Sunday Times * 'Fierce and timely'. * Daily Mail * 'Garvey doesn't pull any punches.' * New Scientist * `The author worries, rightly, that in losing the ability to argue and question intelligently we become more susceptible to the subtle and unseen skills of powerful persuaders.'Financial Times
