A new book by neuroscientist Daniel Levitin on thinking critically in the era of fake news

The book actually came out in March but I just learned about it and thought some of our readers might be interested as well. Professor Levitin is both a neuroscientist and best selling author who's brought cognitive science and psychology to the masses with books like The Organized Mind and This is Your Brain on Music. This new title (actually, it's an updated version of a previous book by Professor Levitin intended to provide the tools to navigate claims of "fake news" in our post-truth era) called Weaponized Lies: How to Think Critically in a Post -Truth Era might appeal to some law profs looking for non-law readings to recommend to students. From the publisher's press release:
