“A compelling commentary on how media affects history, culture, and values. Mr. McHugh’s ideas are fresh, lively, and accessible, and he provides librarians with a unique language for dealing with the competing forces in media today.”
~ Connie Williams, past president, California School Library Association
“Crisply written, creative, and filled with lessons that can be applied to daily life. A great read!”
~ Alan Burke, superintendent K-12 education, Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction
In Slaying the Gorgon, Joe McHugh reminds us that it is only the softer, more human voice that allows us to make sense of it all. In this book of great wisdom and deep humanity, we are able to see the world both as it is, and as we wish it to be.”
~ Jeffery Dvorkin, director, Journalism Program, University of Toronto, and former vice-president and head of news for National Public Radio.
