Editorial Reviews


"The framework used for thinking about the mass media industry is excellent. And . . . the presentation of the material reflects the complexity of the mass media industry in a way that should be quite accessible to students, both conceptually and in terms of specific examples." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By T. Denyer on June 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
First, let me say that the premise of each article was great for a 400- or 500-level college course and prompted many heated discussions.

But, along the lines of the other reviewer... how are we to take it seriously when we come across dozens of grammatical errors, missing words (the most prevalent error) and punctuation disasters? It read as though the articles were submitted, read by a third-grader and then stuffed hurriedly into the book for publication. A quick read by the "editors" would have found the vast majority of errors.

This is not something isolated, for 3 out of the 4 textbooks I have been assigned this summer session have dozens (yes, "dozens") of grammatical, typographical and punctuation disasters -- books well into their 2nd, 4th and 7th editions. No wonder kids graduating college habitually spell "too" as "to."

Fix the errors before you print the third edition!

If you need this book, you need it, but I don't recommend it to those who do not require it. There is too much nonsensical rambling and the writers all seemed to have a need to prove their skills with a thesaurus. Academic writing is one thing, this is just over the top. Not an interesting read.

I needed it for a class and I learned a lot. It has great concepts and the book really puts you in deep thought about a lot that is discussed in the book.
