The Influencing Machine: Brooke Gladstone on the Media is perhaps the most educational graphic novel I have ever read.

In it, NPR personality Brooke Gladstone details a history of the media and how it has shaped our lives ... and how our lives have shaped it. Her facts and opinions are laid out in an easy-to-read manner in both paragraphs and panels, accompanied by Josh Neufeld's black-white-and-blue illustrations.

This eye-opening presentation of the media, or influencing machine will get readers thinking, whether they agree with Gladstone or not, and that is the whole point.
