Synopsis

This book is a primer on critical thinking. Without it, the Internet is only a misinformation highway. The dark arts of untruthfulness are ubiquitous in 'official' information. The general techniques used to distort or misrepresent truth are conceptually explored, illustrated by dozens of examples covering a wide range of subjects. Does classroom size reduction improve education? Can tight oil shale provide US petroleum independence? Are eggs unhealthy? Does the Chevy Volt really get 60mpg-e? Is global warming a hoax or a crisis? The many thought provoking examples are entertaining as well as enlightening.

About the Author:

Rud Istvan is Chairman and CEO of Third Stream Bioscience, which is developing a breakthrough topic antimicrobial licensed from P&G. He is the principal of NanoCarbons LLC, which invented the world's best capacitive energy storage material now going into production with Lenzing AG. Rud was previously Motorola's General Manager of Future Businesses and Director of the Corporate Strategy Offices. Prior to Motorola he was a BCG senior partner advising worldwide business clients.

He holds a summa BA from Harvard College, a JD from Harvard Law School, an MBA from HBS, and 12 issued plus 12 pending US patents. He is an avid four seasons outdoors person: skiing, fishing, sailing, and hunting. He has published several book chapters and peer reviewed papers on energy and strategy subjects. He recently authored Gaia's Limits, a book on global sustainability that arose from work on improved energy storage and his fondness for the outdoors. Official 'untruths' discovered during the years of research for that book motivated The Arts of Truth.
