You Are What You Read (Paperback)

£8.99
Pre-order. Despatched on publication 04/04/2019

Synopsis

Do you ever feel overwhelmed and

powerless after watching the news? Does it make you feel sad about the world, without much

hope for its future? Take a breath - the world is not as bad as the

headlines would have you believe.



In You Are What You Read, campaigner and

researcher Jodie Jackson helps us understand how our current twenty-four-hour news cycle

is produced, who decides what stories are selected, why the news is mostly

negative and what effect this has on us as individuals and as a society.



Combining

the latest research from psychology, sociology and the media, she builds a powerful

case for including solutions in our news narrative as an antidote to the negativity

bias.

































































You Are What You Read is not just a book, it is a manifesto for a

movement: it is not a call for us to ignore the

negative but rather a call to not ignore

the positive. It asks us to change the way we consume the news and shows us how,

through our choices, we have the power to improve our media diet, our mental

health and just possibly the world.
