What People are Saying About This

John F. Short

"Programming Our Lives is right on the mark with the enormous impact television has had on our culture. From what we consider appropriate to how we cope with our illnesses, this book opens our eyes to the myriad ways in which TV has affected us all. As you read through the book, you can't help but muse about what our lives would be like if television had never been invented, and some of your answers will probably come as a big surprise. Cummins and Gordon have created a timely and insightful winner."
