An excellent read, especially at a time when corporate America seems to garner special protection from the Supreme Court. We find that corporate America has no soul when it comes to dispensing the news. Profits above controversy. The book is essentially divided into two parts. The first discusses how lying is a precondition to leadership. The second half of the book is more self-promotional. I just wish the author had spent more time developing the first half of the book.

This book tells you all you need to know about the decline of truth in our society. It's a must-read for anyone with a conscience.

I heard Lewis talking on a radio program, and I just had to order this book. I'M VERY GLAD THAT I DID!

Charles Lewis has done us a favor with this detailed and highly readable account of government mendaciousness. Spoiler alert! It will make you furious!
