|Illustration by David Arshawsky|
Throughout the book, there are a number of illustrations that are perfectly suited for the theme, done by crack cartoonist David Arshowsky. Even here, there are subtle hints of influence, with drawings of a young McLuhan (e.g., page 125), or a reimagining of the Twitter “fail whale.”
So, if you are into mystery stories, puns, humor, Media Ecology, communications theory, or just a relaxing reading at the beach or on the john, this may be a perfect way to spend some time away from texting.
