Knowledge is power. Which is why the rich and powerful don't want you to have it. 'The Playbook' is an exposé of the extraordinary lengths that corporations will go to in order to deny the scientific facts - around climate change, public health risks and worker safety - when they don't suit their agenda. Written in the form of a corporate handbook for tobacco, oil and pharmaceutical company executives, it is a litany of obfuscation techniques, denial, delays and outright lies. Part satire, part social history, part guide to resistance, this is a charge sheet against the powerful.
