about this book

In a series of feisty and ultimately hopeful essays, one of America's sharpest social critics casts a shrewd eye over contemporary culture to reveal the worst--and the best--of our habits of discourse, tendencies in education, and obsessions with technological novelty. Writing in the traditions of Orwell and H.L. Mencken, Postman sends shockwaves of wit and critical intelligence through the cultural wasteland.

"Postman is that rare social critic whose commentary on the current state of American culture and education is as funny as it is thoughtful and well argued...a provocative collection."--The New York Times Book Review
