"A captivating book that illuminates the landscape of conspiracy theories and what they might say about society as a whole."
--New York Magazine

"Meticulously researched."
--Mother Jones

"A frequently jaw-dropping, yet deeply sensitive and curious, journey through some of the most pervasive conspiracy theories in America today."
--Huffington Post

"Merlan approaches conspiracy theories and the people who believe them as a thoughtful, thorough journalist, looking at how those in power wield them at the expense of those who are destabilized and looking for answers. An amazing read."
--Corinne Segal, Literary Hub

"A fascinating perspective on the current political era."

"Merlan's deeply researched, brilliantly synthesized . . . book carrie[s] warnings about the ways disinformation filters into the sphere of legitimate public discourse . . . Her message is chilling but it makes the case--and the space--for hope: if these harms were co-created, so too might be their solutions."
--Sarah Krasnostein's, Literary Hub

"[Merlan] is one of the sharpest reporter/commentators in the game."

"Engrossing assessment of the profitable mainstreaming of conspiracy mongering in civic and political life ... A lucid look at a slippery topic."
