Review

"It is clearly written to be accessible for a vast array of audiences-from undergrads, to grad students, to industryprofessionals. In this sense, the new edition is truly "media education for all"-all reasons, allseasons, and all audiences. It is heartening to see the compilation of research and the careful writing that is displayed in this text. It isdestined to be a classic teaching and research tool for students and professionals." -- John P. Murray
