'O'Shaughnessy's books is very student-friendly and is written with pedagogical concerns to the fore. Students are constantly invited to analyse the media in terms of their own media experience and their own considerations of pleasure and emotional engagement. Each chapter then contains a clear overview of points to be covered, together with several practical exercises, commentaries and a conclusion.'
