The Man, The Myth, McLuhan

While much of what McLuhan forecast has apparently come to pass, understanding him has not become any easier. The author Douglas Coupland (“Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture”) recently read all of McLuhan’s books after he was commissioned to write a short biography of him. But Mr. Coupland found the material so difficult that every two to three pages, he had to take a break from reading.

I love this quote from this article about the centennial of Marshall McLuhan’s birth.
