MythBusters is a science entertainment TV program made and produced by Beyond Television Productions for the Discovery Channel. The series is screened by numerous international broadcasters, including Discovery Channel Australia, Discovery Channel Latin America, Discovery Channel Canada, Quest and the Discovery Channel in the UK. The show’s hosts, special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, use elements of the scientific method to test the validity of rumors, myths, movie scenes, adages, Internet videos and news tales. Filming is based in the city of San Francisco, California, though some elements of production are done in Artarmon, Australia. Plotting and some experimentation takes place at Hyneman’s workshops in the city of San Francisco; experiments requiring more space or special accommodations are filmed on location, typically around the San Francisco Bay Area and other Northern California places, but the show will go to even further locations when required, such as Florida to do some alligator experiments or Africa for some shark and elephant myths.

“Official tales exist to protect officials.” With the opening line as a guide, Liam Scheff pries open the vault of “official-dom” and see what lies beneath. Drawing information from ten years of investigative journalism, Liam invites the reader to join the hunt for the details that are obscured by today’s press release news reporting.
The book looks under the rocks and stones of American culture: From CIA and JFK, to 9/11 and Shakespeare; from Vaccination to HIV to Huge Bang theory, and more. Scheff invites his readers to find out what’s real, what’s right, and what’s just an “official tale.”
“The book is dynamite. I read chapter six line by line, step by step, without once getting up. Riveting, amusing, farcical, eye-opening and long overdue! Liam has wonderfully exquisite sense of irony and understatement akin to that Jimmy Kimmel and Dennis Miller.”
Dr. Charles Geshekter, Emeritus Professor of African History, California State University/Chico
