Format: Paperback
Sartori isn't into communication theory. He's main area of interest is politics, so this book is written to scare parents by showing all the negative effects of watching TV, surfing the internet, etc.

I know that a lot of modern parents use the TV as a nanny. The TV has to be supervised and explained by parents to their sons and daughters, we have to be educated to be able to see what we recieve via TV, internet and other media.

I think that truning off the TV is a solution. The TV is here to stay so, instead of criticizing it and saying we should turn it off and forget about it, we have to criticize it and find out what to do about it, how to use it.

The only favorable thing I can say about the book is that the TV must be used carefully and shouldn't be a parent substitute.

This book provides great insight on the real consequences of mass media. It is free of the prejudices commonly generated by Huxley's "A brave new world", yet it considers the real consecuences of media in our world, the clear dissolution of read knowledge and the discrimination of an elite. This, as Sartori's book, requieres some knowledge, yet it is quite simple and it is a good introduction to understanding some conflicts in our current society, a light and simple book full of meaning.
