MEDIA REVIEWS
"For those interested in honing their talents while also seeing through the other person's/organization's deception, Hausman does an excellent job of explaining how deception works and at times why it is practiced. While he writes in a very readable fashion, he also has a lot of substance in his work. Public Relations Quarterly."
"Hausman explores misleading ads, how colleges massage numbers to attract students, scams credit card companies pull with small print, and more. Hausman's guidelines for being a better information consumer are words we all can live by..." -- Toronto Star
"Carl Hausman has provided a useful, pretty comprehensive guide to the way we lie now...It is a book that should be put into the hands of every young person taking his or her first steps into what might be called the adult world." -- New York Observer
"...his list of deceptive tactics is insightful and interesting, and his jocular style makes it a fun read as well." -- National Journal
