"Eh." That was largely my response on finishing this book. It contained a lot of interesting cultural references, and I really enjoyed the chapter on George Lucas, but for the most part, it didn't grab me. It cast an interesting light on how culture & advertising have really merged into one these days, and so I believe I learned a bit, overall. But I doubt I would pick up another of Seabrooks' books.

"eh" exactly arianna
imagine my surprise when i finished this book and read the reviews before writing my own, only to see my exact thought already expressed!
it is a good book- lots of interesting information. maybe the scope is too broad without being broad enough (does that make sense???). or too narrow?
i did learn some things but no where near as much as i would have hoped
might read another book he has written- probably wont

a combination of exhilarating freedom and claustrophobia, this is the mall of America.
