Product Details


“If you are wondering why so many people seem to be slipping into alternative and frightening realities, you have to read this brilliant book. It’s compassionate, wise, thoroughly reported—and terrifying. One of the defining books of our time.”—Johann Hari, New York Times bestselling author of Stolen Focus

“Captivating from the very first page, The Quiet Damage floored me. With empathetic storytelling and an exquisite eye for detail, Jesselyn Cook ushers readers into the darkest corners of the internet to document how disinformation is dismantling family bonds and disintegrating the social fabric. Gracefully written and thoroughly researched, this book is essential for this era.”—Toluse Olorunnipa, Pulitzer Prize–winning coauthor of His Name Is George Floyd: One Man’s Life and the Struggle for Racial Justice and White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post

“This book is brilliant, heartbreaking, and necessary reading. Through tender stories of families riven by social media, politics, and trauma […] Cook offers an essential account of the context and human cost of conspiracy theory.”—Eliza Griswold, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America, poet, and contributing writer for The New Yorker
