"Bobby Duffy's book is a unique and compelling confrontation with the narratives that shape our lives, society and politics, marrying fascinating data with superb analysis. It is simply indispensable." --Matthew d'Ancona, author, Post-Truth

"This interesting and well-informed book is an invaluable guide to how our perception of facts is shaped. It includes fascinating comparisons between different countries. And it shows that facts and evidence do still matter. Bobby Duffy is a voice of calm reason amidst all our anxieties about a post-truth world." --David Willetts, former Conservative Party MP

"Mandatory reading. This mind-altering book show how most of us are badly deluded about the state of the world." --Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author, Enlightenment Now

"Illuminating and important. Duffy has spent a decade finding the gaps between our perceptions and reality. The result is this fascinating study." -- Dan Gardner, co-author, Superforecasting

"A superb and timely analysis of a genuine and growing threat to democratic debate." --Alastair Campbell, author, and former Downing Street Press Secretary

"A masterful overview of how our perceptions are repeatedly off the mark. Consequential and timely." --David Halpern, Chief Executive of the Behavioural Insights Team


New Statesman's Best Books of 2018

'Mandatory reading' Steven Pinker

Do you eat too much sugar? What proportion of your country are immigrants? What does it cost to raise a child? How much tax do the rich pay? Are we more ignorant than we used to be?

Take a minute to answer these questions. No matter how educated you are, this book suggests you are likely to be very wrong indeed. Informed by exclusive research across 40 countries, conducted by global polling firm Ipsos, The Perils of Perception investigates why we don't know basic facts about the world around us.

Using the latest research into the media and decision science, Bobby Duffy asks how we can address our ignorance and why the populations of some countries seem better informed than others. Essential reading in the so-called 'post-truth' era, this book will transform the way you engage with the world.
