Thanks Mike for the correction. As I recall, when it came out, the LA
Times ranked it as the best book of the year.


Neil Postman's book is actually titled "Amusing Ourselves to Death", which I agree is an excellent book. It also has a chapter specific to television's influence on religion titled "Shuffle off To Bethlehem". As well, it uses ideas from Marshall McLuhan, a catholic scholar famous for the phrase "the medium is the message". All in all, a book very relevant to this blog!
