Bursting onto the page in vivid comics form, radio personality Brooke Gladstone guides the reader through two millennia of media history, debunking the notion that “The Media” is an external force beyond our control and equipping us to be savvy consumers and shapers of the news. A New York Times bestseller, The New Yorker described “The Influencing Machine” as “a comic book with zest and brains – and it just might help a reader understand the brave new world.” And The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote, “It’s easy to imagine ‘The Influencing Machine’ becoming mandatory reading in journalism classes around the country.” Written by Gladstone, illustrated by Neufeld.
