Product Description

Product Description

TIME reveals what today's headlines mean to you and your family -- from politics, to science, to human achievement, arts, business, and society.

Amazon.com Review

Get the inside scoop on the news affecting the nation and the world with TIME magazine. In addition to following all of the world and national happenings, the publication offers clear, concise explanations that not only help you stay abreast of the news, but also understand it. You'll get firsthand reports with expert analysis, stunning photos, and much more in every issue of TIME magazine. The articles ask and answer tough questions, enhancing your understanding of why policy is being made or changed and what's really going on in war-torn nations.

TIME magazine gives you the lowdown on some of the hottest trends sweeping the nation. The columns and articles look into factors that drive trends and how those factors ultimately affect you. The magazine doesn't forget the importance of entertainment to its readership. However, it doesn't engage in salacious reporting of a celebrity's every move. The magazine focuses on in-depth interviews and articles with the entertainers making headlines this week.

Translating politician jargon into laymen's terms is another task that the weekly takes very seriously. It uses graphics to simplify the current issues and to show you the key political players' positions. Backed by extensive research, TIME magazine's interviews also provide firsthand information that gives you background on the issues at hand.

A subscription to TIME magazine is your ticket to the latest world and national news affecting you today and tomorrow. The magazine keeps you up-to-date on the political, social, and cultural happenings, so that you'll have the knowledge you need to navigate any conversation.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Slow Death of a Once Proud Magazine November 21, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I have been a subscriber to TIME for over 15 years and before that a reader of my parents' subscription. It pains me to say that this magazine has forgotten what it is about. Frankly, the only issues worth their salt are those resulting from a major world event such as a natural disaster or a terror attack; such events seem to energize an otherwise listless staff of seemingly bored editors and newswriters.

A newsweekly has the obligation to go beyond the newspapers--to use the extra couple days to provide a more balanced and analytical view. Unfortunately TIME fixes its editorial position at the beginning of a story--any future coverage is designed to prove TIME's initial position correct. The immediate taking of an editorial position is then carried into all future coverage of the event; stifling analysis and preventing any analytical development beyond the first few stories--"we told you so, we told you so." Even worse, the coverage of a lengthy story peters out until something sensational happens at which point the sensational event becomes the ultimate interpretation of the entire story. Can't the magazine occasionally admit it was wrong rather than turning its eye away from the story that continues to burn? Out of sight, out of mind is the mantra...

In fact, I sometimes debate whether the decline of this magazine mirrors or outpaces the general decline in our media; newspapers are failing, television news can't seem to get away from the gory or sensationalistic, even academic journals have specialized themselves into irrelevance. We seem to have a greater appreciation for comedy than analysis.

Neutrality is dead.

4.0 out of 5 stars New sections an improvement February 21, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I was unsure about renewing my subscription to TIME, a solid-if-unspectacular magazine that delivers in-depth coverage of major domestic stories while spending most of its foreign reporting on Iraq. I have high regard for the new regular sections on History and Law. I will reserve judgement on another new section titled "The Power of One," but Caroline Kennedy's recent work on a New York City principal left something to be desired.

If you're looking for deep coverage of world news, this is not the magazine for you--look into The Economist or Foreign Affairs. But as a weekly summary of U.S. news with sharp analysis of the '08 Presidential contenders TIME does just fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do the Math February 13, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I picked up a recent, random issue of Time from a pile. And counted:

96 pages.
- 67 full pages worth of advertisements. (61 full pages, plus 12 half-page ads).
= 29 pages of "content"

And many articles are like advertisements, covering celebrity,entertainment product, diets, gadgets, and vitamins. Plus 4 pages in the sampled issue cover the "social trend" of having your closets customized. So you're left with very little lost in the clutter: Letters to the Editor (that pale next to internet blog posts/responses), short-attention span current event snippets; and Time's news stories with lots of big pictures! Whoopdideedoo!

In short, Time seems aimed at intellectually lazy uber-consumers (who are also apparently too lazy to organize they're own closets!) who like Catalogs, and who have very limited interest in what's going on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad day for Journalism July 19, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I remember my history teacher dragging in 25 copies of TIME magazine back in the 80's. The magazine was chock full of cutting edge journalism (truth with actual facts to support the story's) and edgy human interest stories. Now, it's a sell out to junk and punk blogging, where everyone thinks they're a serious writer.

The magazine has dumbed itself down, to the point I'd rather pick up The National Inquirer, as I might find more truthful writing in that rag these days. Like NEWSWEEK, TIME is circling the drain. As they move completely away from ethical journalism to total fluff and stuff, hyped up, made up entertainment, as well as a statist mentality following like mindless lemmings, romancing the current administration in the White House; it's a thrill up their leg a minute, and no one seems to remember they need a degree in Journalism, not Blogging for Dummies.

Ok, I ordered in July and still have not received it. So I called Synapse, the Amazon Magazine company. Amazon customer service cannot transfer since it drops calls. So, called synapse directly, and they do not know, and say its the publisher. So, I have nothing, but they have charged my card. My advice, go directly to the publisher. Also, since I ordered via Amazon, I now get sales calls. So, Amazon sells your info to Synapse that sells it to marketers who spam your phone with calls. Bad experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars good--as far as it goes, that is March 1, 2008
Subscription Term Name:2 years
Time used to be a lot better; they would spend more time on the pages of the magazine informing people about the news, life and times of our generation and even other generations. They would continue to do follow-up stories more so than they do these days. However, slowly but surely, the magazine has rejected that strategy in favor of more frequent sensationalist front page articles and many more advertisements in the weekly issue.

One thing I do like very much is that once in a while Time devotes the bulk of an issue to a retrospective view of times past. Their person of the year choice is always suspenseful; and I like that issue very much in particular.

Overall, if you want a weekly news magazine, Time is one of those out there to consider. Remember that there'll be more ads than ever before; but the articles that they do present are very well written.

Three stars.
