Ralph Keyes analyzes a significant trend – the triumph of prevarication – and shines a light on the path back to personal integrity. The Post-Truth Era is brilliant social criticism, and sobering reading.
Landon Y. Jones, former editor of People magazine, author of William Clark and the Shaping of the West
If you’ve ever wondered why so many people aren’t telling the truth, you must read The Post-Truth Era! I was transfixed by what Ralph Keyes discovered. This eye-opening book ranges from politics to religion, résumé fraud to fraudulent courtship, compulsive lying to petty fibbery, alerting us to one of the most dangerous phenomena of our time: the decline of honesty. The Post-Truth Era is a remarkable and extremely important book.
Richard Farson, President, Western Behavioral Sciences Institute, author of Management of the Absurd
Ralph Keyes’s books always enlighten us about aspects of our contemporary culture. His latest book unravels the webs of deception in our national life and personal lives, and helps us understand why we lie so often – and are so often lied to. The Post-Truth Era is engaging and enlightening.

I read The Post-Truth Era for pure pleasure on this long-overlooked trait. A superb development of the subject, the nips and tucks we take on facts of life, especially in the self-presentation of our image.

I love The Post-Truth Era. I’ve quoted it in conversations ranging from child rearing to complexity theory. It’s one of the most provocative books I’ve read in recent years.
Mary Boone, author of Leadership and the Computer
The Post-Truth Era is an important public service. I hope it gets in the hands of leading columnists and public observers because it deserves to be part of the national dialogue.
Laurence Leamer, author of Sons of Camelot
I read The Post-Truth Era in one sitting. It is really terrific.
