Reviews

A book that everyone in America should read every few years.

-- "Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize-winning author"

A very informative and entertaining and chastising book.

-- "Harper's"

An engrossing book-sensitive, thoughtful, damning, dead on target, and in most respects unanswerable.

-- "Scientific American"

Excellent...It is the book to end all books about 'The American Image'-what it is, who projects it, what effect it has at home or abroad.

-- "Observer"

Tells us how to see and listen, and how to think about what we see and hear.

-- "George F. Will, author of Men at Work"
