An incisive book that chronicles how the world became hooked on bluffing - and why we have to stop it. Britain is run by people who are bluffing. At the top of government, our media and the civil service and sit men - it's usually men - whose core skill is talking fast, writing well, and endeavouring to imbue the purest wind with substance. They know a little bit about everything, and an awful lot about nothing.

James Ball has worked in political, data and investigative journalism in the US and UK for BuzzFeed, The Guardian and the Washington Post in a career spanning TV, digital, print and alternative media. His reporting has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service and the British Journalism Award for investigative reporting, among others.

Andrew Greenway is a former government official who worked in five UK central government departments before reaching the senior civil service at 27. He left the bureaucracy in 2014, and now works as a partner for Public Digital, advising governments and large organisations around the world on institutional reform. He has written on politics and Whitehall for the Guardian, New Statesman and Civil Service World.
