The News: A Users Manual

Alain De Botton

Alain de Botton explores our relationship with the news in this book full of his trademark wit and wisdom.

Following on from his bestselling Religion for Atheists, Alain de Botton turns now to look at the manic and peculiar positions that the news occupies in our lives. We invest it with an authority and importance which used to be the preserve of religion - but what does it do for us?

Mixing current affairs with philosophical reflections, de Botton offers a brilliant illustrated guide to the precautions we should take before venturing anywhere near the news and the noise it generates. Witty and global in reach, The News will ensure youll never look at reports of a celebrity story or political scandal in quite the same way again.

One of our most consistently illuminating writers on contemporary culture

And just as you can be an agnostic, a skeptic, an atheist in relation to religion, so all those tags can apply also for the news. It's been running since 1789. Of course, the news will never tell me that.
