Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a priceless collection because of the insights it gives to McLuhan's thinking. There are transcripts of his interviews and lectures. McLuhan is best when he is in the oral mode as opposed to the written mode. I know as I worked with him for seven years. Robert K. Logan, author of McLuhan Misunderstood: Setting the Record Straight and Understanding New Media: Extending Marshall Mcluhan.

HASH(0xa6a417e0) out of 5 stars Spoken words to help the written June 20 2005
By Gordon Cieplak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For anyone remotely interested in McLuhan, I recommend this book for the following reasons.
It is a much easier read than most of McLuhan's work, as it is a collection of interviews and speeches which are necessarily more concise, and were for me much more involving.
It gives an insight into McLuhan's theories which can be quite puzzling and abstruse at first. In his speeches and essays, he repeats his same themes in a variety of manners, which help to give the reader a better understanding of the theories.
It's no McLuhan for Idiots (I'm not sure if there is such a thing, based on the nature of his works), but it is definitely a very useful and enjoyable companion book.
