Book Review: How to Lose the Information War by Nina Jankowicz

I have to give Ms. Jankowicz credit for not taking sides and attempting to be as bipartisan as possible. She writes about how many entities on the political spectrum in the US embrace Russian disinformation tactics to their advantage.

The story revolves around Mexicans getting deported from a chicken plant, in an inhuman way which separates them from their children.

This book is very unique, I enjoyed the dark humor, even though it took the book a bit to get going the story flowed smoothly

I found the story to be well researched and detail enough to build a picture without hurting the narrative. The writing is very engaging, almost lyrical, but the author somehow also manages to capture the harsh life and climate.
