JOHN STAUBER reading & book signing for "The Best War Ever" Thursday, September 28 at 7 pm at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco) The Best War Ever is about a conflict that was devised in fantasy and lost in delusion. It’s also about the futility of lying to oneself and others in matters of life and death. In his new book, John Stauber offers a factual dismantling of the Bush Administration’s claims about the Iraq War, from its inception to the latest debacles. We've met the enemy - and it's our own propaganda machine. John Stauber is founder and director of the Center for Media & Democracy. He and Sheldon Rampton write and edit the quarterly PR Watch. They are also the authors of Weapons of Mass Deception, Toxic Sludge is Good for You!, and Trust Us, We're Experts! In 2001, the National Council of Teachers of English gave Rampton and Stauber its annual George Orwell Award for exposing the use of doublespeak in American life. This Booksmith sponsored event will take place The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco). For further information, call 415-863-8688 or visit www.booksmith.com If you can't attend this event and would like to order a signed copy of the author's new book, please email or phone our store.
