The news : a user's manual

Alain De Botton (Author)
With an exploration of our obsession with media, this book examines a number of archetypal news stories - a plane crash, a murder, a political scandal, a celebrity interview - from a perspective to ask intriguing questions: why do disaster stories titillate? why obsess over love lives of the famous?
