About the Book :
A passionate and entertaining guide to spotting and decoding the delusions we live under. Oil companies advertise their green credentials. Billionaires organise grassroots political movements. Cuts that target the poor are billed as progressive. Casually dressed employees play table football in airy open-plan offices, but work longer hours than ever before. To Eliane Glaser, these are all signs of the maddeningly surreal gap between appearance and reality in modern life. With the melting away of conflicts between East and West in the Cold War and Right and Left in our politics, the big ideologies were consigned to history. But Get Real argues that agendas never really disappeared. They just went undercover, creating a looking-glass world in which reality is spun and vested interests appear in disguise. Busting the jargon and unravelling the spin, Get Real reveals the secrets about modern life that we were never supposed to know. It puts the truth and the power to choose firmly in our hands, because only by telling it like it is can we improveand maybe even saveour world for real.
