    " "For America is engaged in the world's most ambitious experiment to accommodate itself to the technological distractions made pos-sible by the electric plug." What, if anything, has changed since Postman first penned these words? "

    " while I liked it, I thought it was on point, I have to believe we,as a people, are able to see through the superficiality described in this book. But there are a few eye openers. worth the time to read "

    " Originally had to read this for a class in college. It's fantastic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juliana | 3/25/2011

    " Amazing book but not that easy to read. It is in an essay format and when i read it as a junior in high school it was torture. But, it's message is relevant and i find myself referencing it in thoughts enough that i have never forgotten what i learned. "

    " "Media as epistemology" - The medium through which we receive our news dictates what news we receive, and how we think about / "know" it. What's newsworthy on a TV show is different from what's newsworthy in print. Very interesting. "
