So many definitions! Helpful, but taking notes over it was a longer process than I'd anticipated-- mostly because every single sentence I'd highlighted had a new definition or word that I didn't want to forget. Thus, a hugely helpful reference book, but plan to spend almost as much time copying the definitions as reading it!

A good introduction to basic concepts in media psychology. Not difficult to grasp, but engagingly written. I think most people could get something out of this, even if they aren't reading it for a class; the media plays a large role in our lives.
