I read an interesting book review this morning. The book is called Tangled Webs: How False Statements Are Undermining America. "Perjury [is] becoming the norm among affluent criminals and threatens legal system, says Pulitzer winner James B. Stewart."
His book tells of how lies and perjury (lying under oath) increasingly feature at the highest levels of business, media, politics, sports and culture, and in particular tells the stories of Martha Stewart, Scooter Libby, Bernie Madoff and Barry Bonds. I'm feel sure the subject matter would interest most people who follow current affairs, though obviously Americans especially.
Were I to write such a book, it would no doubt be about the damaging lies 'obesity experts' and 'dieting gurus' tell about the causes of and remedies for obesity, and about the many other criminally dangerous lies that have become so prevalent in the Healthcare Industry, the Drug Industry and the Food Industry, and about the politicians, bureaucrats et al who are their creatures, and about how these lies are destroying the health and happiness of billions of innocent people the world over.
