Here, he tells the story of how we humans have spent history lying to each other - and ourselves - and asks an important question: how can humanity move towards a truthier future?PRAISE FOR HUMANS: A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW WE F*CKED IT ALL UP:'F*cking brilliant' Sarah Knight, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck'Very funny' Mark Watson'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...
