Review:

"A masterwork that seamlessly weaves an array of complex elements into the story - elements such as entrepreneurship, technological developments, government regulation, patent wars, advertising, news, programming innovations, and celebrities.. The authors are to be commended for their year-by-year chronological approachand for smoothly incorporating big-picture issues, concrete examples and social contest into that chronological framework. Students, therefore, get a strong sense of the when along with plenty of the so what.. The book is absolutely packed with seemingly minor historical tidbits that, actually, can be used as springboards for discussions of major current issues - for example, the inculcation of advertising messages into programming content, something prevalent through the history of broadcasting in blatant ways (The Philco Hour, The Lucky Strike Dance Orchestra)."--American Journalism
