Greg Palast is the only author I can think of that makes you laugh while he is telling you stuff that makes smoke come out of your ears. This book in print is wonderful but to hear him read the book is awesome.
This book is awesome!!!!
Live and die with no regrets
Palast's reporting for the BBC of the Bush/NeoCon crime family are well documented and concise. The humor injected lightens the mood of the otherwise depressing/disgusting subject matter of lies and deception perpetrated on the American people and the world at large.
Everyone who voted for Bush needs to read this book. For the rest of us, it confirms what we already suspected or knew.
This is an excellent piece of straight up journalism. The world needs more journalists like Palast instead of the those in the talking head media we have today who are afraid to investigate the real story, as ugly as it may be.
Awesome, unique, brilliant
The way the author logically pieced together the story while backing up his statements w/ facts from numerous sources
Real passion, anger, and empathy!
The facts re; how much power is held by so few and those in power's lack of empathy, decency, and morality. All the powerful had was a lust for more money and even more power.
WOULD YOU PLEASE TELL THE PUBLISHER THAT THERE ARE MANY OF US WHO WANT TO SEE "Vulture's Picnic" IN AND AUDIO FORMAT. Palast REALLY comes alive in his audio presentations. Also, thanks for sponsoring "The Majority Report" in however way you do it. I discovered both Naomi Klein and Greg Palast on either "The Majority Report" or on Sam Seder's other podcast and radio show "Ring of Fire" I am a lousy reader and coupled with that fact, I do some monotonous work at times, Audible sure has made my life a whole lot more interesting and fun. Also I chatted on line w/ David from your company this AM and he was more than helpful. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THAT ALL OF YOU DO! Sincerely; Tom Ehrenberg, Eagle, CO.
I liked the material but wished most of it were not true and was just fiction. I have followed this authors reports and have found him to be credible. I didn't like some of the voice acting as it tended to detract from the content of the book.
I found it not very good, but if you like leftist demagogy told with passion, I guess you might like it. Big oil and neo cons are the boogiemen, peak oil is nonsense, mother nature has an endless supply, Hubbert was wrong because he worked for Shell.
I had hoped for a more freedom oriented critique on the Iraq war.
I lasted through the first 20 minutes of this nonsense and had to turn it off.
A bunch of inchoerent ramblings that some might think passes for humor.
I am hoping I can get my credit back.
