Though a tad diffucult at times, especially at the begining, but definately worth it. After reading, I will neve look at the mass media the same again. It truly amazing to see the techniques described in the book at work. When I was in high school, and read Orwell's 1984, I came away terrified. After reading this book, I was terrified even more, as I realized such a horrid society is, in many important respects, a reality.
