Soft cover. The wonderfully fluent young author of The End of Nature (1989) here softens the lamenting, doomsday tone of that book, counting on impressions of sweet nature to bring us to our senses. B ...show morey contrasting the shallow information he absorbed by watching more than 1700 hours of cable video--the entire output of the Fairfax, Virginia, cable-TV system--to the deep knowledge he gained from a short camping trip in the Adirondacks, McKibben advances the subversive idea that TV has actually made us less informed by blinding us to the subtlety and power of unmediated experience in nature. ``Time for a swim. I ease myself down from the rocks into the chilly water, feeling the mud between my toes.'' Again and again, McKibben contrasts such quiet, plainly stated sensory impressions, the fruits of 24 hours spent alone atop an anonymous mountain, with the meaningless jumble of ``information'' that pours forth daily from the one hundred channels of the largest cable system on earth. The items he reproduces from TV--extracted from shows ranging from CNN to McHale's Navy to Wild Kingdom--are harrowing in their dumbness or their dramatic exaggeration or their disconnection from reality. ...show less
