    Story

    The dizzying exuberance of the Internet-driven marketplace offers unprecedented opportunities and an ever-expanding choice of products and jobs. This is a boon to us as consumers, but it's wreaking havoc in the rest of our lives. Using examples from everyday life, Reich delineates what success is coming to mean in our time and suggests how we might create a more balanced society and more satisfying lives.

    Kenneth says: "What you knew, but hadn’t articulated"
    "One of the best books I have ever read"
    Overall

    This book summarizes the consequence of globalization within the confines of our new economy with respect to our daily lives.

    Thomas Friedman could learn a lot from Mr. Reich.

    Full of meaningful statistics, analysis and insight and surprising entertaining.

    Simply one of the best books I have ever read.

  • The Burden of Bad Ideas: How Modern Intellectuals Misshape Our Society

    Story

    In closely reported stories from the streets of New York to the seats of intellectual power, MacDonald shows how bad ideas get started and then acquire a life of their own. Her reports trace the transformation of influential opinion-makers and large philanthropic foundations from confident advocates of individual responsibility, opportunity, and learning into apologists for the welfare state.

    Mike says: "Shining the cold light of truth . . ."
    "Buying this book was a bad idea!"
    Overall

    Within the first 12 min of this audio book this ?author? blames all the flaws of our (American) society on ?liberals? and the ?intellectual elites?.

    Rather odd considering the fact that she:
    1. graduated from Yale, Summa Cum Laude.
    2. did her graduate studies at Cambridge University.
    3. received her J.D. from Stanford University Law School.
    4. actually won an Outstanding Intellectual Achievement award.

    Oh yeah, she is also a frequent guest on Fox News. Need I say more?

    This is a kinder, sweeter, gentler Ann Coulter - but far less entertaining.

    Needless to say, don?t take this book seriously.

  • Stupid White Men...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!

    Story

    The polls indicate that 60 percent of Americans are "upset or angry" about this land in which we now live - a land where crooked courts select the president and money rules the day. If you're feeling the same way, here's the book for you. Michael Moore, the award-winning provocateur behind Roger & Me, returns to size up the new century - and that big, ugly special-interest group that's laying waste to the world as we know it: stupid white men.

    Irene says: "Frustrated: oversimplifing and diluting of issues"
    "WARNING TO THE RADICAL RIGHT:"
    Overall

    WARNING TO THE RADICAL RIGHT:

    You just may end up loving this big, fat, but certainly not stupid, white man and hating yourself.

    I did.

  • House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship between the World's Two Most Powerful Dynasties

    How did the Bushes, America's most powerful political family, become gradually seduced by and entangled with their Saudi counterparts?

    Nicholas says: "Needs To Be Unabridged"
    "Enlightening"
    Overall

    An incredibly disturbing portrait of our current President's and former President?s tangled relationship with the families who harbor terrorists.

    It is astonishing that such a compromising political situation exits in America. It is perhaps even more shocking that both big media and we the people have let this uncomfortable relationship go unquestioned.

    As one would expect, his book sheds a lot of light on the ?War on Terror?, both wars in Iraq and the finances of the USA.

    This is a must read for all Americans before voting on November 2.
