Comment List (Total:1)

  •     This book is far more grounded and effective than more well known works that criticize modern mass media. The author takes a multidisciplinary approach to the subject and does a very impressive job, too! Of great usefulness within the book are the numerous references (government documents, web sites) where you can find more information on the many topics collected together here. In 200 pages, this book has a lot of information and explanatory prose. Due to its multidisciplinary nature, many lay readers may find parts of it tricky to understand, and perhaps the book's main flaw is that it takes its readers' academic background for granted sometimes and fails to completely explain all the terms it uses. Still, this packs in a lot of info into 200 pages. As for media violence, I'm convinced! If the book alone doesn't do it for you, feel free to check up on its reference sources. Besides that, numerous major U.S. health-related associations (psychology, medicine, pediatrics, and others) have now released official statements stating that after long decades of research into the subject of the effects of media violence, an effective consensus has now been reached about the reality of these effects. In this book, you can read an impressive sampling of the evidence, and the multidisciplinary theory on the subject. Drawbacks are that extra proofreading was needed, and this book acts more as a starting point to explore the body of existing research, rather than a final word. Activist intentions of the author also sometimes intrude a bit into its effectiveness as a survey.
