In this volume, psychologists and communication experts present theory on understanding and predicting how learning occurs through media consumption. As the impact of traditional advertising has declined over the last couple of decades, marketers have scrambled to find other ways to effectively communicate with consumers. Among other approaches, marketers have utilized various forms of product integration. Product integration is mixing a commercial message in with the non-commercial message via TV, movie, video, and other entertainment venues. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in psychology, marketing, communication, advertising, and consumer behavior.

"People spend more time with entertainment media than with any other activity outside of work. Yet given how ubiquitous it is, we have spent far too little effort learning about how entertainment media affects how we think and act. This volume seeks to address this limitation in our knowledge by explaining how and why entertainment media may affect our everyday beliefs and actions." - Ron Faber, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Minnesota, USA
"This volume is carefully developed and the approach has a clear significance to this important and rapidly changing field. The chapters that deal with the ways product and brand messages are integrated into media content (chs 1, 2, 4) deal with a new and unique, as well as urgent, research priority." - Sharon Shavitt, Department of Business Administration, University of Illinois, USA
