The campaigns of 2008 and 2010 have put much of the data to test and the evolution in the past six years of social media has been so dynamic that it puts much of the conclusions of Lyengar's book in the category of "old news." Good in it's time perhaps, but less significant today.
I want to read about politics, world news, and finance, what's happening in the Middle East, sports, entertainment news, weather, our government, science, health, and technology.
