it was amazing
Recommended for: people with intellect
Read in September, 2007

Where do I start? My whole life I have been a TV addict. My mother used to advise me strongly against it, but I would never listen. Recently I vowed not to watch TV. I was doing well, only watching when visiting others who were watching it. After reading this book I am bound and determined to never watch it again. I am not easily swayed, but Mr. Mander's arguments are true and to the point. He talks about the effects of the ingestion of artificial light, to the hyperactivity of children, to the programming of adults to succumb to autocratic and dictatorial behavior. It helps that our best teachers, like Sheikh Hamza and Sheikh Nuh, agree with the book and advocate against TV. Read it, and then turn off the TV.

Sabiel I've been meaning to read this for a while. Sadly, my to-read list is already interminable. Sigh.
