    The News: A Users Manual

    'The news' occupies a range of manic and peculiar positions in our lives. We invest it with an authority and importance which used to be the preserve of religion - but what does it do for us?

    Mixing current affairs with philosophical reflections, de Botton offers a brilliantly illustrated guide to the precautions we should take before venturing anywhere near the news and the 'noise' it generates. Witty and global in reach, The News will ensure you'll never look at reports of a celebrity story or political scandal in quite the same way again.

    Part of the Breaking the News exhibition range.
