Postman, Neil, Postman, Andrew

SUMMARY

Television has conditioned us to tolerate visually entertaining material measured out in spoonfuls of time, to the detriment of rational public discourse and reasoned public affairs. In this eloquent, persuasive book, Neil Postman alerts us to the real and present dangers of this state of affairs, and offers compelling suggestions as to how to withstand the media onslaught. Before we hand over politics, education, religion, and journalism to the show business demands of the television age, we must recognize the ways in which the media shape our lives and the ways we can, in turn, shape them to serve out highest goals.Postman, Neil is the author of 'Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business', published 2005 under ISBN 9780143036531 and ISBN 014303653X.
