On Doubt

Leigh Sales

In this personal essay, one of Australia's most respected journalists argues in favour of a doubtful mind.
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.

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.”
—BENJAMIN LAW

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.”
—ANNABEL CRABB
