1.0 out of 5 starsNothing interesting in this book in 2019
Reviewed in the United States on December 5, 2019
I expected to read about how propaganda works on public, methods of manipulation etc, but I found just bunch of rumoring about world politics. I think Noam just does not tell the truth, answers superficially on questions asked, talk about what HE wants to talk, rather on what being asked. Basically it his opinion on worlds politics, which I think is wrong.
4.0 out of 5 starsWorthwhile Read for New Perspectives
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2004
For the price, this is a worthwhile book that presents a different perspective on politics and current events. Just be warned this is not an objective treatment on the science or implementation of propaganda. I was looking for a book that explored how propaganda works and is managed. Instead, the author spends a lot of time criticizing policy and those he considers the power elite. I appreciate the author's point of view but tend to discount criticism that doesn't come with proposed solutions, examples, supporting data and facts.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe best Chomsky Lecture I've heard so far.

Speaking a length to a sympathetic audience at Harvard, the real Noam lets his hair down and gives qualifications and background for many of his statements that we are used to hearing. Lot's of references as well. It's a relaxed conversational tone; if your car has a cd player this will put you in a great mood on your way to work.
