Invaluable perspective.
– John J. O’Connor

Publishers Weekly

The impressive scope of Bergreen’s study, a serious critique of the nearly total surrender of the TV industry to commercialism, makes it an exceedingly valuable as well as engrossing chronicle.

TV Guide

Laurence Bergreen offers a whirlwind, layman’s tour of American broadcasting, nicely researched and breezily written – a handy Baedeker for TV viewers who are eager to know how we came to this.

Toronto Globe and Mail

For anyone interested in broadcasting, it is often an exciting tale and it is so thorough that I have complete faith in its accuracy and fairness.
– Blaik Kirby
