Product Description
 
The world of television has changed drastically since its invention, as has our perception of its contributions to society. It’s true that TV can help you veg out, chill, and escape, but contrary to conventional wisdom, it can do so much more. Through How TV Can Make Your Smarter, readers learn the real and numerous emotional and, yes, intellectual benefits of TV. Through a wide selection of genres from scripted comedies, dramas, and classics, to reality and beyond, author Allison Shoemaker provides the tools to taking advantage of our 24/7 access to this content and how we can rewire our brains to how we engage with TV in order to gain meaningful insights. Included are lots of entertainment-geared tips for living your best TV-watching life, like when to 'consciously uncouple' with a show, how to find shows that speak to you in a world filled with millions of options, and why it’s OK to indulge yourself with 'bad' TV.The world of television has changed drastically since its invention, as has our perception of its contributions to society.
