  • "The merit of Hector Macdonald’s Truth is precisely that it forces us to remember how few claims can be definitively established as beyond dispute"

    Washington Post
  • "In a time when truth is under assault, Hector Macdonald is here to defend it. He offers clear-eyed, compelling guidelines for becoming a more accurate consumer and producer of information."

    Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS and OPTION B with Sheryl Sandberg
  • "Delightful… beautifully explores the truth that truth can look very different to different people."

    Matt Ridley, author of Genome and The Red Queen
  • "No one can tell the whole truth in all its glory. Hector Macdonald's Truth explores how communicators spin reality, whether in the name of clarity or skullduggery. Macdonald is a deft guide to a topic that could not be more timely."
