An Even Greater Scandal: I’m a Liar but You’re a Bigger One
You’re in for a big surprise when you read An Even Greater Scandal: I’m a Liar but You’re a Bigger One.
Author Fred Leavitt says there are four different ways in which people apparently gain knowledge: 1) We’re born knowing; 2) We know through faith; 3) We know through reasoning; and 4) We know through experience.
“I show that all four ways are defective and we can never be certain – not even mildly confident – that what we think we know is correct.”
Comments about his previous book The REAL Drug Abusers:
“The REAL Drug Abusers is a devastating presentation of the propaganda and deceit that define the pharmaceutical industry. This book presents a fascinating glimpse of the academic, economic, and medical abuses that are associated with legal drugs.” – Alexander Shulgin, pharmacologist, chemist, artist, author and drug developer
“I was astounded to read about the abuse and misuse in the legal drug industry.” – Delvin Williams, former all-pro running back for the San Francisco 49ers
“Information that will be useful to anyone who has ever taken or is tempted to take so much as an aspirin.” – Barry Gifford, novelist and screenwriter
“As your book so clearly shows, money drives the war on drugs just as it drives a dangerous pharmaceutical industry and a medical profession that too often neglects its Hippocratic Oath for the sake of money.” – Eugene Oscapella, barrister and solicitor, Canadian Foundation for Drug Policy

The Billionaire’s Game works on the premise that a group of extremely wealthy and bored individuals develop a game in which they compete in trying to manipulate selected targets to perform crazy, demeaning behaviors.
Both the hero and heroine of the novel are targets. They must each conquer tremendous obstacles as they try to figure out whether they can trust each other, their friends, and the meaning of every event in their lives.
The Billionaire’s Game is frighteningly plausible and realistic. In fact, there is a question about whether it should be classified as fiction or nonfiction. Careful readers will find the conclusion highly unsettling. They will realize that we can never be certain of anything.
“Fred Leavitt’s special brilliance is convincing us that our ‘betters’ are not that smart after all. Leavitt bulldozes various philosophical constructs, then merrily guides us through the wreckage – without ever condescending to the reader. He gradually convinces us that we are as clever as he is, and that is quite clever indeed.” – Glynn Washington, host of the PBS show, “Snap Judgment”
“Leavitt is like a lightweight boxer who hits like a heavyweight: continuous flurries of punches, each one with mind-rattling effect. It’s a rush.” – Art Twain, president, Art Twain Creative Services
