Overview

Remotely Controlled: How Television is Damaging Our Lives by Aric Sigman


A startling exposé of Britain's growing addiction to television and why and what should be done to stop it, the author looks at the statistics that show television has become an obsession even more influential than parents inside the household. In this insightful and shockingly perceptive assessment of the relationship with the small screen, the author reveals the alarming reality of what television is actually doing physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. He provides evidence as to how television contributes to the rising global obesity rate by actually slowing our metabolic rate, stunts children’s brain development, and is responsible for over half of all rapes and murders in the industrialized world.
