Just too much unformation in here that I didn't care about. I like that spelling error; it's apt. Not enough dirty little secrets; it more seemed full of random bits of history, though honestly I didn't read much of it.

All of Dunnigan and Nofi's "Dirty Little Secrets...." books are very well written, and in a most satisfying format. They call them "random access" books. Each chapter will deal with an over arching theme, such as Global Media, but with in each chapter there are independant bits of information that can run from one paragraph in length to a few pages. So one can open any page and start reading. All of their books are packed with intresting information.

I like this book, but it's lack of source material is concerning. I have no idea where he's getting his information from...
