Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business

Product Description

Imported from USA


“I can’t think of a more prophetic, more thoughtful, more necessary – and yes, more entertaining – book
about media culture.” –Victor Navasky, National Book Award-winning author of The Art of Controversy

“All I can say about Neil Postman’s brilliant Amusing Ourselves to Death is: Guilty As Charged.” –Matt Groening,
Creator of The Simpsons

“As a fervent evangelist of the age of Hollywood, I publicly opposed Neil Postman’s dark picture of our media-saturated
future. But time has proved Postman right. He accurately foresaw that the young would inherit a frantically
all-consuming media culture of glitz, gossip, and greed.” –Camille Paglia

“A brilliant, powerful, and important book. This is an indictment that Postman has laid down and, so far as I can see,
an irrefutable one.” –Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World
