This book seems to do as it says on the tin, after reading countless books which have misleading chapter titles and don’t get to the point this book is clear from the titles right through to the chapter end. This chapter was defining the different between popular culture, interesting to read but I don’t want to dwell on it too much, I already know they are different things. A nice chapter for background reading but nothing relevant to put into the symposium.
