Publisher's Summary

When society seems to demand confidence and certainty, how much courage does it take to admit doubt, especially self-doubt? In this personal essay, one of Australia's most respected journalists argues in favour of a doubtful mind.

Her classic personal essay carries a message about the value of truth, scrutiny and accountability - a much-needed antidote to fake news.

Donald Trump, the post-truth world and the instability of Australian politics are all examined in this fresh take on her prescient essay on the media and political trends that define our times.

Wish the author narrated

Loved the essay however I found the narrators style distracting. I found it hard to hear Leighs voice in Louises interpretation.
