A very well-written, if sometimes over-ferocious, attack on those people who think that society will become really nice and crime-free if we get rid of TV and movie violence. The book looks at all of the studies that have been done and examines them closely to show how weak and inconclusive they really are. The author Gauntlett understands TV really well and this comes through in the book. Recommended.
