"Worth reading for [its] dissection of one of the more annoying and insistent mosquitoes of our social and media lives."-- Financial Times

"A crisp, highly informative introduction to what ails the information industry and what can be done about it ... Ball's analysis of where the media have gone wrong is thorough and courageously even-handed" -- The Times

"Better than anyone I know, Ball explains how the economics of the web is destroying the possibility of financing serious news and raising the question of whether readers want a cautious fact-checked article when it is cheaper and much more profitable to follow Breitbart, the Express or the Canary and whack out clickbait, which is anything but 'boorring' ." -- Nick Cohen The Observer

"A timely and important book by one of the smartest of the new generation of journalists and thinkers." -- Alan Rusbridger, former Guardian editor-in-chief

James Ball has worked in political, data and investigative journalism in the US and UK for BuzzFeed, The Guardian and the Washington Post in a career spanning TV, digital, print and alternative media. His reporting has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service, the Scripps Howard Prize, the British Journalism Award for investigative reporting, The Royal Statistical Society Award and the Laurence Stern Fellowship, among others.
