Published by jerry kroth
Duped: delusion, denial, and the end of the American dream is a penetrating look at contemporary delusions slithering across the American landscape. A delusion is a false idea about the world, a kind of intellectual trance. When an individual suffers one, the diagnosis of mental illness is not far behind. When a nation labors under them, we have a state of collective mental instability. This odyssey explores six gargantuan delusions infecting the American psyche.

Pre-publication reviews:
 Duped! is incredible. You will want to shove it up the nose of every pompous,conservative, right wing, born again, love it or leave it jerk you have ever met. Dr. Kroth continues to approach the unapproachable. He holds no punches indescribing our American culture's blind xenophobia; telling ourselves we are thebest while betraying our most basic common sense as the evidence piles up at our feet. We choose leaders who simply tell us what we wish we could believe, and continue to act in ways that shorten our lives, steal our money, and leave us lesssecure than ever. In this crisp criticism of our collective confusion we see how wehave all become the chickens praising Colonel Sanders. We are simply outgunned by short-term corporate and political profits and power from the getgo. I wishthere were more like Dr. Kroth aboard think tanks, committees, and boardroomsacross our land, but if there ever were, they are probably planted in the Nevadadesert somewhere. Enjoy the ride before your nickel runs out.
—Steve Stelle, author of 
On Shaky Ground Totally eye opening, and, frankly, a very scary narrative. I never realized how deluded we are, and how a thick cloud of denial covers overour public discourse. This is a necessary read  for any conscious American.
—M.S. Forrest, Ph.D., clinical psychotherapist.
