PROBE: Would You Buy Insurance From This Man?

From Don Theall's The Medium Is The Rearview Mirror : " McLuhan often approaches areas with the stance of the huckster, the techniques of the propagandist and the strategies of the con man ... McLuhan's methods of extrapolation are questionable, he trivializes important methods of discovery, allows for fallacy and his conclusions are often too facile."

McLuhan on Theall's book : "I found the book very dull and confused."
