Introducing a new book ! ( Radio Rhubarb News Update )
Regarding this Radio Rhubarb advertisement for a new book, it was expected NOT to cross the following statement as a TRUE statement: "This product being advertised is a pamphlet on the dangers of illiteracy". However, it was mentioned in the ad: "Not being able to read is a serious disadvantage in this modern world where writing is everywhere: on TV, on billboards, on the Internet, in magazines"; the text also mentions that without being able to read, one is "excluded" and that not being able to read is a "handicap". Do these words, especially the reference to "a serious disadvantage" not refer to or at least subintellegate "the dangers of illiteracy" ? Best regards, Sigi.
