In our request "to be in the know" are we compromising our capacity for unadultered thought? In this startling book, Dr. Wilson Bryan Key exposes the devious and sophisticated strategies that advertisers use in newspapers, magazines and television to manipulate and seduce our thoughts and senses. He explores how the media establishes our "reality" and why, subsequently, Americans are the most manipulated people in the world. This provocative book will forever change the way you view the world around you.

Highly interesting, if somewhat misleading, volume. Too much speculation, yet, the paranoid mind might find something to latch on in here should it run out of conspiracies. Read full review
