To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Disappointing to say the least. This book is extremely pretentious and boring and goes into extreme, extreme detail on tiny pointless matters. I got to halfway through and realised I literally hadn't learned anything and didn't bother finishing. This is one of those books people like to read so they can act like they're smarter than others. Please don't bother wasting your money.
One of the most important Books in modern media and political theory, especially the first chapter. The book is fantastic however it definitely begins to slow down towards the end (the Vietnam chapter is a bit of a drag) however it's a must read
It opened my eyes to how the world, and the media worked, although it is a bit repetitive. Well researched, with references, and examples of media biases and false media narratives. I think you only need to read half the book to get the picture......
The first chapter, his model of propaganda, is disturbing but essential reading. Only the brave need attempt to read the rest of the book chapter by chapter: the odd chapter read in detail is enough to convince you that there are data available to support his argument and to give you sleepless nights.
