'Uproarious . . . [Phillips and Elledge] pair the abundant good humour of this book with a warning about the corrosive effects of conspiracy theories' The Times

From the Satanic Panic to the anti-vaxx movement, the moon landing to Pizzagate, it's always been human nature to believe we're being lied to by the powers that be (and sometimes, to be fair, we absolutely are).

But while it can be fun to indulge in a bit of Deep State banter on the group chat, recent times have shown us that some of these theories have taken on a life of their own - and in our dogged quest for the truth, it appears we might actually be doing it some damage.

In Conspiracy, Tom Phillips and Jonn Elledge take us on a fascinating, insightful and often hilarious journey through conspiracy theories old and new, to try and answer a vital question for our times: how can we learn to log off the QAnon message boards, and start trusting hard evidence again?

MEDIA REVIEWS

For Tom Phillips and HUMANS:

In dark times, it's reassuring to learn that we've always been a bunch of clueless f*cking nitwits - Stuart Heritage, Don't Be a Dick, Pete

A light-touch history of moments when humans have got it spectacularly wrong... Both readable and entertaining - Telegraph

If you find yourself looking at the news and wondering how humanity has got so many things wrong, over and over again, this book is a very funny answer to just that question' - Mark Watson, comedian

“Champion”

Conspiracy is a great book. It doesn't insult those who get sucked into conspiracy theories, but instead explains the background to them, their implausibility and the psychology of it all. I found it fascinating... More
