What La Generalista has to say:

This is a must-read, tell-it-like-it-is book chronicling the state of modern media. Some might find this book bristling – probably because it is too close to the truth of how far journalism has fallen in an age where entertainment and speed triumph. Ryan Holiday graphically outlines how media is shaped in a digital age and the perils of anyone covered by it.
