The Invention of News: How the World Came to Know About Itself

tags: media, news

This one was tough. It is exactly as advertised – a detailed historical account of the origins of newspapers, specifically in 14th - 18th century Europe.

The problem is, that’s kinda boring. I can’t fault the author, but it’s very, very dry topic. And the book is very detailed.

I’m glad I read it, but it was tough to get through.
