Acclaimed journalist Leigh Sales has her doubts, and thinks you should, too.

Her classic personal essay carries a message about the value of truth, scrutiny and accountability—a much-needed, pocket-sized 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.

Reviews

I read On Doubt before I knew Leigh Sales. I thought then that it was a disproportionately valuable book for its size. In the years since, it's only become more pertinent.

When this first came out I kept it close for reassurance doubt wasn't just normal but vital for writing. Rerelease couldn't be better timed.
