Today (October 5th) marks the anniversary of the death of one of the most important social critics of the past 50 years, Neil Postman. In honor of the occasion, we offer this introductory reading guide to his work.
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
