"Post-TV is a crucial addition to the conversation about what television means in an era of expanded consumer activism, deregulation, global conglomeration, and technological innovation." -- Rebecca Sullivan, Department of English, University of Calgary "With Post-TV, Michael Strangelove fires the opening salvo regarding our thinking about television and its significance in the early twenty-first century. His notion of post-TV is one that is incredibly compelling, and one that media and cultural studies must address." -- Scott Henderson, Department of Communication, Popular Culture, and Film, Brock University
Michael Strangelove has been called a "guru of Internet advertising" (Wired) and "the man who literally wrote the book on commercialization of the net" (Canadian Business). He is a lecturer in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Ottawa.
'I enjoyed reading Post-TV. It is extremely accessible and clearly written book... It is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the future of television.' -- Maria Michalis International Journal of Digital Television, vol 7:01:2016
