General Description

In this eloquent and persuasive book, Neil Postman insightfully reveals the effects of television and media, which are training our habits, desires, and thoughts, and ultimately making us “decontextualized” robots. After alerting us to the dangerous effects of television, Postman offers suggestions for withstanding the media onslaught. Before we hand over politics, education, religion, and journalism to show business, we must recognize the ways in which the media shapes our lives and the ways we can, in turn, shape it to serve our highest goals.
