Not nearly as good as "You're Being Lied to..." This edition fluctuates between "so? what's your point" (e.g., US chemical and biological weapons development, Panama was created for profit, etc.) and "wow, I hope this author finds counseling or someone with an MRI machine." It's a good read if you got a lot of time in a padded room.

In questo libro sono contenuti buona parte degli articoli già presentati nel primo volume: se già avete acquistato il primo quindi, non comprate questo "numero 2". Risparmiate i soldi.
Per quanto riguarda il contenuto, alcune cose sono interessanti, altre un pò meno, in quanto riguardano argomenti circoscritti alla realtà degli U.S.A.
Alcuni argomenti risultano un poco pesanti ed eccessivamente prolissi, altri sono ben trattati.

Some good some bad. That's what you get with a book that consists of various authors. I felt some of the stories where extremely biased while others were objective. The reason I thought some were biased is instead of giving you the information and letting you make up your mind it seemed to want to tell you what you should think and I just don't like that crap at all.
Storie che conoscevo e storie che non conoscevo; articoli ormai sorpassati e altri ancora attuali. Interessante davvero

It just completely blows my mind how I never even questioned half the stuff that I am now realizing I have had "spoon-fed" to me through the media. We need to be incharge of our own opinions.
