"To the novice researcher, Verified serves as a sympathetic and accessible guide to those who feel overwhelmed by the volume and complexity of the modern information machine. For researchers, academics, librarians, and students who are already SIFT adherents, the book provides context and examples in spades, which help explain why the approach makes sense." * College and Research Libraries * Lively and pithy, suitable for students. . . . Engaging, insightful, and useful. * American Biology Teacher * "Fortunately, a new book from two leading academics has arrived to help arm us against the flood of deliberate attempts to sow distrust and separate us from our own senses of whats real and not. * Chicago Tribune * A much-anticipated book by two leading experts of the field, Verified goes beyond defining the problem and offers readers clear advice on how to navigate a world of spin, trolls, and lies. Wonderful to see this guide published! -- Maria Ressa, winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for work to safeguard freedom of expression Verified is the book and mindset that society needs right now. This is, of course, assuming that you want society to survive." -- Guy Kawasaki, Host of "Remarkable People and author of The Art of the Start As the value of information literacy becomes increasingly clear, Verified offers timely, research-based solutions to the ever-present and elusive problem of misinformation run amok. -- Daniel Willingham, Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia, author of Outsmart Your Brain: Why Learning is Hard and How You Can Make it Easy "Verified is a sorely needed intervention into todays chaotic, often deceitful, information environment of influencers, ChatGPT, deepfakes, viral videos, and distrust. Offering ways to combat the mindset of knee-jerk cynicism, it responds to a world in which political power, not truth seeking, has too often become the ultimate arbiter of truth. Verified will be a treasured resource for debunking internet disinformation to instructors, students, and for you (to hand to parents and skeptics)." -- Andr Brock, author of Distributed Blackness: African American Cybercultures An indispensable guide for students and citizens of all ages and backgrounds. -- Francis Fukuyama, Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow, Freeman Spogli Institute, Stanford University, and author of The End of History and the Last Man and Liberalism and its Discontents This book should be required reading for students, journalists, content creators, and anyone else who regularly consumes and shares information (i.e. pretty much everyone). Rich with actionable guidance and real-world examples, Verified helps readers learn the skills to stay out of the weeds of online misinformation and find the best available evidence for any claim. Im so grateful to Caulfield and Wineburg for creating this resource. -- Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, author of The Wellness Trap Verified offers an ethos that can help all of us understand and confidently use what we find online. This book belongs in every backpack, classroom, library, workplace, and home. -- Phillip Jones, Grinnell College Libraries Verified does more than preach against the dangers of misinformation and online mischief, it provides clear, focused strategies for navigating and researching online that should become part of every literate persons repertoire of skills. Every educator whose students touch the webwhich is to say all of usneeds this book. -- Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, Executive Director, National Writing Project Verified is a lifeline. With research-verified and surprisingly simple techniques, the authors show us, step-by-step, how to sift the real, useful, true information from the tsunami of online bogosity.
