Reviews

Praise for Daniel J. Boorstin's The Image

"A very informative and entertaining and chastising book."
--
Harper's

"A book that everyone in America should read every few years. Stunning in its prescience, it explains virtually every aspect of our mass media's evolution and seductiveness."
--Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize winning author of A Visit From the Goon Squad

"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."
--The Observer "A brilliant and original essay about the black arts and corrupting influences of advertising and public relations."
--The Guardian "Boorstin's book tells us how to see and listen, and how to think about what we see and hear."
--George Will
