Reviews

Praise for the first edition:

"Gauntlett's optimism is infectious, the subject matter engaging, and, as a result, the book is difficult to put aside. It is a thoroughly pleasurable introduction to the ties between self-identities and representations of gender in media." - Anne E. Lincoln in Journal of Consumer Culture (2003)

"Brings the theory of popular culture to the widest possible audience ... Delightful and provocative." - Charlie Peverett of HERO (2002)

"The value of Gauntlett's work is his engagement with feminism and issues of masculinity in ways which...appeal to students." - Nic Groombridge, St Mary's University College
