El problema con McLuhan es que se trata de un teórico que aborda los problemas más complejos en la vida cotidiana con un lenguaje muy simple, lo que resulta engañoso al lector inexperto, que creerá comprender todo luego de una primera lectura.

McLuhan es un teórico que amaba escribir entre líneas, y Paul Levinson es uno de los pocos autores capaces de leerlo como corresponde, explicarlo y vincular sus teorías con la modernidad de manera fiel a los escritos del autor.

Un gran libro para comprende

McLuhan's legacy lives into the digital age, even though the media have mutated. Maybe that makes it even more so. And this is from 1999 . . .

Levinson's fabulous is an excellent introduction to McLuhan's work and influence on academic and public debate about the impact of media on society as well as a forward looking book providing us with an excellent starting point to analyse the impact of the Internet and social media on society and social relations. Highly recommended read!
