Why do we always listen to what "they" say? A noted media pundit gives a devastating critique of the influences behind the culture of rampant consumerism, showing how the media attempts to interfere with rational decision-making. "An essential book for anyone interested in the power of media and the mechanics of deception".
From the Publisher:
Argues that bosses, so-called experts, and authorities real and imaginary have taken over much of the decision-making power in our lives, and explains how the new technologies and media innovations are being co-opted to shape our world and to damage individual initiative. Reprint.Argues that bosses, so-called experts, and authorities real and imaginary have taken over much of the decision-making power in our lives, and explains how the new technologies and media innovations are being co-opted to shape our world and to damage individual initiative.

Annotation:
In this scholarly analysis, the author discusses how evolving media persuasion techniques weaken society's decision-making powers, and argues that seemingly emancipating new media technologies foster the same intellectual stagnation as traditional media.
