Recipient of the Marshall McLuhan Award for Outstanding Book of 2006 from the Media Ecology Association
"One of the best books on the media I've ever read."
"[A] dazzling array of provocative social theories"
"[D]eceptively colloquial, intellectually dense ... a must-read for philosophers of every stripe"
"[L]ike spending time with a wild, wired friend--the kind who keeps you up late and lures you outside your comfort zone with a speed rap full of brillaint notions."
"A haunting, fertile book...if you want to think afresh about who you are and how you came to believe what you believe, start here."
"[A] fine roar of a lecture about how the American mind is shaped"
"De Zengotita...is probably the best mass media critic out there"
