Summary In this eloquently persuasive book, Neil Postman examines the deep and broad effects of television culture on the manner in which we conduct our public affairs and how "entertainment values" have corrupted even the way we think. Postman believes that public discourse, the advancing of arguments in logical order for the public good, is being converted from exposition and explanation to entertainment.
