Anybody studying the media or popular culture should not be without this book. John Fiske describes the many aspects of how television influences our lives, and discusses many ideas in how television is produced. Apspects of popular culture surrounding televisoin such as post-modernism are discussed and written in a style that doesn't try to confuse you, which is appropriate of a lot of academic readings
