Overview

Do you ever stop to consider how you came to receive a particular news story? Why did that story get on the agenda? What about everything else happening that didn't get picked?

Positive psychology expert Jodie Jackson invites you to consider these questions in her first book, which discusses the crucial - but typically overlooked - impact that the news has on us all. After unsuccessfully advocating for a news media weighted equally between problems and solutions, Jackson decided to go back to university and find out how the news interacts with human psychology. You Are What You Read distils all Jackson has learnt, in a bid to change the world for the better.

This book takes a thoughtful look at how our contemporary news media operates, the impact of this on our world view, and how each of us can harness these insights for the betterment of society.
