Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First, don't let the cover deceive you. The cover indicated to me that this would be a fun book about TV with insights from Socrates, Aristotle and that group thrown in. Instead, this book is incredibly boring, because it is a book about Socrates, Aristotle, Plato, Descartres and that group with a little TV thrown in. I don't even know why any TV was thrown in because there seemed to be no tie-in, except artificially-- which I think might have been a ploy to sell the book. I bought it. But I was under the impression that it was going to be interesting and a book I would want to read. If I wanted to read Karl Marx (yep, he's in there, too) I could have found a more interesting book than this.
