    "You’ve seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don’t know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me. I’m a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs—as much as any one person can."

    Book Mogul says: "Trust me, it's worth the listen, and I'm not lying"
    "A little too much trust"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. While interesting, it was not as thought-provoking as advertised. That combined with little to no actual sources to back up his claims, it is really just the author's word hoping to be taken as truth.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was read well, however there are particular moments in the book where the audio cuts to what sounds like last-minute additions. The audio is lower quality, and sounds as though recorded through a built-in computer microphone.


    Was Trust Me, I'm Lying worth the listening time?

    It is a quick read, so I have no regrets.
