Reviews

At the risk of being seen as credulous, I'd say [Mercier] makes a strong case for gullibility being a far less prevalent and important trait than we thought.-- "New Scientist"
[Not Born Yesterday] will be of interest to anyone who wonders how to trust what people say and do, especially in the digital, free-for-all age of unfettered, often suspect, information. The breadth and depth of research studies presented by Mercier will be especially appealing to science aficionados.---Karen Koenig, New York Journal of Books-- "New Scientist"
A bracing book that might make you less gullible about gullibility.---Barbara Kiser, Nature-- "New Scientist"
[Not Born Yesterday] marshals a convincing body of research . . . from history and sociology, from anthropology and from the psychology laboratory.---Timandra Harkness, UnHerd-- "New Scientist"
[Mercier's argument] is refreshingly optimistic.---Daniel Akst, Strategy+Business-- "New Scientist"
