    A good read

    This book is very informative and reveals some truth that is not known to many Americans about politicians and coporate executives. Sometimes the material covered seemed redundant because she expresses in great length the scandals done by Ebbers and other notable CEO crooks. The author airs out some dirty laundry on corporate crooks, sometimes attacking President Bush and other times just the general system. After reading the book it makes the reader compelled to stay more informed and take action into revitalizing America's future.

    A Powerful Manifesto

    Read this book... but have an ample suypply of antacids and aspirin nearby when you do. Huffington's ability to cut through the obfuscation of The Devil's Twins (Big Business and increasingly-unregulated Big Government, working claw in bloody claw) is staggering. Anyone who can read this book and not be sickened and enraged must be a pol feeding at the trough, a corporate CEO (or minion of theirs--the most-vile lobbyist) or simply not able to understand--or accept--reality. This is not just an indictment of W and his crony politics, though he certainly gets his due. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

    good book

    This is a good book and has some lessons for us all. There are other corporate leaders to learn from about how we can avoid this greed and corruption, like Nissan's Carlos Ghosn (Turnaround: How Carlos Ghosn Rescued Nissan).

    Corporate Greed

    This book is very revealing about what is happening at some corporations in America. The greed of CEO's, the questionable accounting practices, and the blurring of lines between Sales and Research and Development. Very informative, and a good read.
