    One thought on “Marshall McLuhan: Escape to Understanding”

    1. This book is very well written and deserves a higher rating but and it s a big but I think this book could only be understood if you already have a degrees in media and linguistics and if you do you don t need to read this book you probably already understand McLuhan I was looking for something the layman could understand and this is not it I guess it s Marshall McLuhan for Dummies or a children s version of media is the message for me.

    2. Not a terrific read for me I wanted of a biography and less of a educational treatise on McLuhan s philosophy A lot of the book, in fact most of the discussion of field ground in media, was way beyond my understanding and interest There were a few bright spots including the explanation of the medium is the message , but I reeally enjoyed the actual biographical portions of the book the most.
