   A hundred year old book that everyone should read.
In an interview, Freud's nephew, Bernays, explains how propaganda is used to control the public in every facet of their lives. I recommend this and Walter Lipmann's Public Opinion to anyone. The men spoke frankly about how they were controlled by a small group of rich and powerful men.
   Open your eyes. They Live!
This is a must read to understand what's really being said, why and how it's manipulated in order to manipulate you, the public, he said. A real eye opener. Think of them, and you are one of the sheeple until you read this little book.
   Psychological Warfare Explained
The powers that are experts at applying psychology to get the masses to bend to their will without even realizing what they are doing are doing it. Psychological warfare is extremely effective if one knows what they are doing, he said. Only then would the masses wake up.
   Pretty basic
The book was originally published in 1928, and today's standards are not that high. 0 1462228 14622201 This is a great deal older than the Beatles' first book, "The Whole Nine Yards." He equates propaganda to mean something a bit different than what it is understood to mean today. Furthermore, Bernays allows no concession for filtering data through a Biblical worldview sieve. This book might be good for the person who doesn't understand how much propaganda really occurs in society today, but for those that want more, it's lacking.
   If you are interested in marketing you should be required to read this book and learn the history
A timeless parable of the lost love of a great artist. I wonder why they don't require this sort of reading in schools, but then I remember what reality is like, and it makes total sense, Mr. Rule told the judge. The only downside to this book is that it is written by a propagandist, which if you really think about it, one can help but question his motives the whole way through.
   Not as interesting as I had hoped
He was a brilliant propagandist who wielded tremendous power over public opinion. From the popularization of cigarettes to the CIA coup in 1950s Guatemala, Mr. Caraballo has been responsible for everything from the popularization of cigars to the CIA takeover of the country. He holds a tremendous amount of knowledge and manipulative ability in regards to propaganda, he said. Unfortunately, this book is not where he shares that information, or a memoir of his greatest manipulations. The book was written as a defence of propaganda. Instead of branding propaganda as a devious dark art of mass mind control, Bernays paints it as relatively positive if not sinister. He is deliberately withholding information in an effort to castigate the Vatican, he said. Instead of a deep dip into the water, they found a puddle and dipped their feet in it.
   A must-read for the 21st century. We're all programmed, let's just be aware of it.
Pauley, also known for his fiction, is a master of understatement. It could have been written a year ago versus a hundred years ago, but then again, most of the references are no longer relevant. The book shows how literally 99% of the thoughts and decisions we make are done via programming. Most importantly it shows that propaganda is a necessary tool.. but it can be used to evil ends. By knowing what its root cause is, you can spot propaganda more effectively.
   You have better insights in Wikipedia
There is no firm depth or analysis of this suit.
   A bit like Tolkien, very
Rats are clearly disturbing, if you can get thru it. Like Tolkien, we're dealing with a bit of a horse whisperer.
   Don't buy any other books
Don't buy any other books until you have read this one and others by Bernays.
