Essential McLuhan by Marshall McLuhan ( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Given the profound influence that the writings and teachings of Marshall McLuhan have had in the Information Age, it is surprising how few people have read anything more than context-free excerpts printed in indecipherable day-glo fonts over a background guaranteed to induce vertigo. But once you actually get around to reading McLuhan's ideas about the Global Village, the history of print, and the rise of digital media, you realize that behind the hype he did indeed make many substantive and influential contributions. This collection of articles and excerpts from his most important books is a comprehensive and accessible overview of the musings of the "Patron Saint of the Digerati". It includes substantial passages from my favorite McLuhan book The Gutenberg Galaxy (a brilliantly provocative academic treatise about the history and consequences of writing and printing), as well as many articles and interviews you wouldn't find in any of his previously published books anyway. --Amazon.com
The media symplex : at the edge of meaning in the age of chaos by Frank Zingrone ( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this brilliant, prophetic book, Frank Zingrone shows how mass media, and all electronic technology, simplify our ability to represent experience. Reality is becoming for us entertainingly mediated, with nature itself becoming a filmic simulation of reality with media access from our living rooms. We watch gourmet cooks prepare complex meals on TV while increasing our consumption of convenience foods. We become increasingly sedentary while accessing escalating amounts of mass sport." "The result of this overload? A paralysis that keeps us from taking social or political action, that confines us to consume as directed by the images created by advertisers. A paralysis that cripples public discourse. A paralysis that deadens the vitality of tradition and fosters dispersonalization. In The Media Symplex, Zingrone charts a path through the maze of modern media overload. In doing this, he gives us insights into retrieving meaning from the edge of chaos."--BOOK JACKET

Hailed by Tom Wolfe as "the most important thinker since Newton, Darwin, Freud, Einstein, and Pavlov," sixties media theorist Marshall McLuhan was the first person to grasp the full and radical implications of mass media for contemporary life. Forward Through the Rearview Mirror is a multidimensional, unconventional look at McLuhan's life and ideas in the context of the information age. An evocative, imaginative, and visually exciting mosaic of aphorisms and images
