Television has conditioned us to want spoonfuls of entertainment material, the price we pay for which is deriving less satisfaction from dealing with the serious concerns of public affairs.
In this book, Postman offers insights into how we can better deal with our present situation. Rather than being transfixed by the shallow distractions of television, people must learn to discern between what is real and what is not.
