Description - Is That a Fact? by John Barron

Get all the facts ... if you can handle the truth.

Does Australia take the highest number of refugees per capita in the world? Are vegetarians slimmer than meat eaters? Is Clive Palmer really a billionaire ... Every day the ABC Fact Check unit listens to scores of claims being made in the news and asks, 'can that be true?'. they check the facts, talk to the experts and bring you the right answer.
In this compact new book the Fact Check team, headed by ABC journalist and broadcaster John Barron, pull together the facts on over one hundred burning questions. Whether shark culls really work, is Australia's debt out of control, or whether any political party really has created a million new jobs. They also tackle the fact check zombies; the disproven claims which simply will not die, and they target the public figures who play fast and loose with the truth.
Fun, informative and most importantly, trustworthy. this is a book for everyone who's ever wondered if the facts are out there...
