E-BOOK EXCERPT

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In I’m Telling the Truth, but I’m Lying Bassey Bassey Ikpi explores her life—as a Nigerian-American immigrant, a black woman, a slam poet, a mother, a daughter, an artist—through the lens of her mental health and diagnosis of bipolar II and anxiety. Her remarkable memoir in essays implodes our preconceptions of the mind and normalcy as Bassey bares her own truths and lies for us all to behold with radical honesty and brutal intimacy. A GOOP 10 New Favorite Books • A Bitch Magazine Most Anticipated Books of 2019 • A Bustle 21 New Memoirs That Will Inspire, Motivate, and Captivate You • A Publishers Weekly Spring Preview Selection • An Electric Lit 48 Books by Women and Nonbinary Authors of Color to Read in 2019 • A Bookish Best Nonfiction of Summer Selection "We will not think or talk about mental health or normalcy the same after reading this momentous art object moonlighting as a colossal collection of essays.” —Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy From her early childhood in Nigeria through her adolescence in Oklahoma, Bassey Ikpi lived with a tumult of emotions, cycling between extreme euphoria and deep depression—sometimes within the course of a single day. By the time she was in her early twenties, Bassey was a spoken word artist and traveling with HBO's Def Poetry Jam, channeling her life into art. But beneath the façade of the confident performer, Bassey's mental health was in a precipitous decline, culminating in a breakdown that resulted in hospitalization and a diagnosis of Bipolar II. In I'm Telling the Truth, But I'm Lying, Bassey Ikpi breaks open our understanding of mental health by giving us intimate access to her own. Exploring shame, confusion, medication, and family in the process, Bassey looks at how mental health impacts every aspect of our lives—how we appear to others, and more importantly to ourselves—and challenges our preconception about what it means to be "normal." Viscerally raw and honest, the result is an exploration of the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of who we are—and the ways, as honest as we try to be, each of these stories can also be a lie.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The cult classic that predicted the rise of fake news—revised and updated for the post-Trump, post-Gawker age. Hailed as "astonishing and disturbing" by the Financial Times and "essential reading" by TechCrunch at its original publication, former American Apparel marketing director Ryan Holiday’s first book sounded a prescient alarm about the dangers of fake news. It's all the more relevant today. Trust Me, I’m Lying was the first book to blow the lid off the speed and force at which rumors travel online—and get "traded up" the media ecosystem until they become real headlines and generate real responses in the real world. The culprit? Marketers and professional media manipulators, encouraged by the toxic economics of the news business. Whenever you see a malicious online rumor costs a company millions, politically motivated fake news driving elections, a product or celebrity zooming from total obscurity to viral sensation, or anonymously sourced articles becoming national conversation, someone is behind it. Often someone like Ryan Holiday. As he explains, “I wrote this book to explain how media manipulators work, how to spot their fingerprints, how to fight them, and how (if you must) to emulate their tactics. Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I’m tired of a world where trolls hijack debates, marketers help write the news, opinion masquerades as fact, algorithms drive everything to extremes, and no one is accountable for any of it. I’m pulling back the curtain because it’s time the public understands how things really work. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.”

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Become A Human Lie And Truth Detector Lying is an ingrained instinct. Humans learn to lie by the age of three and just keep on lying into adulthood. On average, people will lie 3 times or more in a ten minute conversation with a stranger or acquaintance. Does this sound unbelievable? Or maybe, you just don’t know how to spot the lies. There are many types of lies in this world: little white lies, big lies, small lies, omissions, exaggerations, and unconscious lies. Everyone lies at some point in their life. However, some people do it more often than others. It can lead to an immense amount of frustration when dealing with habitually dishonest people. It may be a teenager that you suspect isn’t telling the entire truth about their late-night out or a co-worker is constantly bragging about achievements that you doubt they completed. You may have a relative that always denies what they said at that last family gathering or maybe you just want your spouse to tell you what they actually think about your newest sweater. Regardless of the circumstances, there are often many everyday situations that make you want to know the complete truth. But how does one go about finding out if someone is actually lying? Most people can only successfully spot a lie about 50% of the time. Many people also think that only polygraphs can tell when people are lying. But what if you could become a human polygraph? What if you could tell if someone was lying simply by the way they said something or the facial expression they used? If this sounds like an appealing prospect, strap yourself into the lie detector's chair with the "Liar Detector." In this guide you’ll learn: * Psychological motives behind lying * Physical body language of falsehoods * Verbal cues to pick up lies in one's words * Subtleties to spot dishonesty in the digital age * Guidelines on when and how to confront the fibber * Strategies to both detect the lie and draw out the truth * Applications for confidence in lie detection and confrontation * And much more! By learning these new techniques, you can embolden yourself with new lie-detecting skills and become a real-life human lie detector to detect all kinds of deceptions from those around you.
