The medium is the massage is a very interesting book because it is very image oriented. When i bought this book i was confused because i thought i had already read it because I had read the thesis by the same author “the media is the message.” this book is basically an artistic representation of this thesis which was interesting because I already knew what it was about but got to see a visual aspect not present in the thesis. I really enjoyed seeing the visuals that the author thought went with his message.

    That is very true. What makes this book so great is that it is not a conventional book in any way– in that sense using medium in a completely new way and pointing out the structures that we often create media within.
