Praise for the first edition:
"Gauntlett’s optimism is infectious, the subject matter engaging, and, as a result, the book is difficult to put aside. It is a thoroughly pleasurable introduction to the ties between self-identities and representations of gender in media." - Anne E. Lincoln in Journal of Consumer Culture (2003)
"Brings the theory of popular culture to the widest possible audience ... Delightful and provocative." - Charlie Peverett of HERO (2002)
"The value of Gauntlett's work is his engagement with feminism and issues of masculinity in ways which...appeal to students." - Nic Groombridge, St Mary's University College

I can only advise anyone to read this book who is interested in how media influences society. It is written in a very well understandable language that even I - not a native English speaker- could well follow and is even fun to read - something you can unfortunately not say about many theory books for university.
Gender studies often tend to suffer from a bone dry and dense style of writing but Gauntlett consistently maintains humour and clarity.
This book is perfect for students looking for an accessible introduction or for those interested in the topic but looking for a pleasant read.
