I'm not much of a reality show viewer and this book confirmed for me that this is the right decision. Besides being super informative, it is also really fun to read.

Fascinating, well-researched book about how potentially damaging reality TV can be. It's not something I had given much thought to before the book was recommended to me, but I'd also recommend it to others if you want an eye-opening look at how reality shows actually operate.

Well-written look at why "those" shows are not only a waste of time but are actually harmful to our culture as a whole. Strong, sensible feminist worldview.
