The Persuaders: The Hidden Industry That Wants To Change Your Mind

In a philosophical polemic in the tradition of On Bullshit, James Garvey mourns the death of proper debate and reminds us of the value of rational argument. Philosopher James Garvey?described by the Guardian as having "a delicious style, often very funny, and a trick of ushering the reader right inside his thought experiments"?writes clearly and entertainingly about the dangers we face when we lose our grip on persuasion by rational means. But Easily Swayed isn't just a requiem for rationality. It's a call to think again about the way we think now.
