I loved this book for so many reasons but the thing that really changed me is what @_katherine_may_ wrote about sleep. I don't feel broken anymore - like there was something wrong with me for not sleeping and that's relieved anxiety and lo and behold I am sleeping better.      source

Audience of One book cover
Audience of One
Donald Trump, Television, and the Fracturing of America
James Poniewozik - 2019-09-10
Goodreads Rating
Audience of One by James Poniewozik delves into the history of television and its role in shaping American society and politics, ultimately leading to the election of Donald J. Trump. Poniewozik interweaves two crucial stories, tracing the evolution of television from the shared monoculture era to today's atomized universe, and a cultural critique of the president. He reveals how Trump became a character that wrote itself and rode the media beast to ultimate power. A penetrating and often hilarious review of the farcical reality show we have all come to live in, Audience of One is a sobering reflection on the intersection of politics and pop culture.
