Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business, Unabridged Audiobook (CD/ Audio)

by Neil Postman, Jeff Riggenbach

Product Overview

In this eloquent and 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 the very way we think. As politics, news, religion, education, and commerce are given less and less expression in the form of the printed word, they are rapidly being reshaped to suit the requirements of television. And because television is a visual medium, whose images are most pleasurably apprehended when they are fast-moving and dynamic, discourse on television has little tolerance for argument, hypothesis, or explanation. Postman argues that public discourse -- the advancing of arguments in logical order for the public good, once a hallmark of American culture -- is being converted from exposition and explanation to entertainment.
