Trust Us, We're Experts! How Industry Manipulates Science and Gambles with Your Future
by Sheldon Rampton, John Stauber

AVAILABILITY: Readily available

Publication Date: January 2002
Publisher: Penguin Group
Binding: Paperback,368pp

Description: The book that unmasks the sneaky and widespread methods industry uses to influence opinion through bogus experts, doctored data, and manufactured facts.

We count on the experts. We count on them to tell us who to vote for, what to eat, how to raise our children. We watch them on TV, listen to them on the radio, read their opinions in magazine and newspaper articles and letters to the editor. We trust them to tell us what to think, because there's too much information out there and not enough hours in a day to sort it all out.

John Stauber is the founder and director of the Center for Media & Democracy. He and Sheldon Rampton write and edit the quarterly PR Watch: Public Interest Reporting on the PR/Public Affairs Industry.

Review(s): "Finally a long-overdue exposť of the shenanigans and subterfuge that lie behind the making of experts in America." - Jeremy Rifkin

"If you want to know how the world wags, and who's wagging it, here's your answer." - Bill Moyers
