Get Rich or Lie Trying: Ambition and Deceit in the New Influencer Economy. 

More than one fifth of children want to become influencers and it’s easy to understand why. But as Symeon Brown explores in this searing exposé, the influencer reality can be very murky. From IRL streamers in LA to Brazilian butt lifts, from sex workers on OnlyFans to fraudulent cryptocurrency schemes, these are the incredible stories that lurk behind the filtered selfies and gleaming smiles.

Exposing the fraud, exploitation, bribery, and dishonesty at the core of the influencer model, Get Rich or Lie Trying asks if our digital rat race is costing us too much. Revealing a broken economy resembling a pyramid scheme, this incredible blend of reportage and analysis will captivate and horrify you in equal measure.

Newly published Get Rich or Lie Trying is available fresh in hardback, kindle or on audible.
