    In this eloquent and persuasive book, Neil Postman examines the deep and broad effects of television culture on the manner in which we conduct our public affairs, and how "entertainment values" have corrupted the very way we think. As politics, news, religion, education, and commerce are given less and less expression in the form of the printed word, they are rapidly being reshaped to suit the requirements of television.

    Story

    Postman's novel is a fantastic read though in today's world of the internet it has become somewhat dated. His discussion of the "typographical mind" was especially interesting. The reader was fast but he put 10 hours of reading into 5. Get's two thumbs up from me!
