Mary I recently saw the video Transformation: The Life and Legacy of Werner Erhard and it reminded me about this book and when 60 minutes did their piece on Werner Erhard. This book really shows how a few people with an ax to grind can manipulate the media. It is a cautionary tale that we all should know about. 60 Minutes and the Assassination of Werner Erhard

Joanne I agree with your assessment Mary. 60 minutes is much more like infotainment than reporting these days. And it was stuff like their unprofessional hack job on Werner Erhard that paved the way for all the irresponsible TV & video shows that are all over the airwaves and internet these days. We should have learned the lesson back then, but sadly we did not. I like what Jane Self has to say on the topic... http://janeself.com/Book_about_Werner...
