Mirror, Mirror,
On My Car

Just like the cover of this book, truth is
black and white. The way we live our lives,
relative to it, is more accurately described as
gray. Mirror, Mirror On My Car takes a look
at what truth is and how we find it. There is
special emphasis on how it affects a writer
whether in books or in the news. As the
book illustrates, truth is a complicated matter.

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth
is a revolutionary act." - George Orwell

magazine gets into the opposite
of truth - lies. You can read any

xxxxxxxxxxxc Edward Ball's book is somewhat
puzzling to me since he's talking
about genealogy and using it for
uncovering some truths. However,
it certainly applies to truth as well
as the science vs junk science idea.
At the same time, my family tree
and all the research involved was
interrupted before and this book
helps in only some small ways - not
exactly what I had hoped for when
I picked the book at the library.
