it was amazing

Recommended for: everyone

This book rearranged my brain. I have never read something that met my intuition half way, and then expanded my vision beyond all critical capacities I knew before. I will never conceive of power, structures, knowledge, statistics, or my cock the same way again. His anti-humanitarian, empirical, and nonuniversal critiques that follow the money and the violence are the perfect medicine for people who have been reading saggy assed media studies and cultural studies for too long. Saved my life.

T.J. Brearton Hahaha "saggy assed media studies"...

message 2: by Luke (new) - added it

Luke In my experience, all of the best writers have a habit of doing that just that: meeting our intuition half way and truly expanding our vision.
