Neil Postman. Neil Postman (March 8, - October 5, ) was an American author, media theorist and cultural critic, who is best known by the general public for his book about television, Amusing Ourselves to Death. For more than forty years, he was associated with New York University. This book was written at a time in which the World Wide Web did not even exist, and any reference to the Internet would have called it Ciberspace. The conclusion of the book is quite uplifting as Postman implores us not to allow precious things such as religion, the telling of stories, and relationships themselves to slip away.
