This book begins where You Are Being Lied To left off. Once again, an amazing group of investigative journalists, researchers, insiders, dissidents, and academics peels back consensus reality and shows us what's really happening. Hard, documented evidence on the most powerful institutions and controversial topics in the world. Among the revelations:

Antidepressants trash your brain.
China has repeatedly threatened to nuke the US.
Young people are less violent now than they have been in over 30 years.
Mad Cow disease is killing people in America.
Many disabled people don't want to be "cured" and don't admire Christopher Reeve.

Plus previously unpublished revelations about the International Monetary Fund, the Vatican Bank, the Olympic Games, Henry Lee Lucas, the drug war in South America, unpublicized accidents at nuclear power plants, and much more. Includes reproductions of rare documents and photos, including an unpublished eyewitness sketch of a mysterious third gunman at Columbine.

Among the 50+ contributors: Naomi Klein Douglas Rushkoff Arianna Huffington Howard Zinn Paul Krassner Gary Webb Howard Bloom Noreena Hertz Alexander Cockburn Thomas Szasz William Blum James Ridgeway Kalle Lasn Wendy McElroy
