    A Real Eye Opener

    One of my favorite books of the year. Greenwald pulls no punches and eloquently describes the real differences between the rich and powerful; and everyone else. Almost every page delivers an assault on how corrupt and lop-sided our criminal justice system has become. There are no happy endings in this book, and all the better; for it depicts the reality all too well.

    Masterful review

    Masterful review of the slippery slope to oblivion of the American heritage for which so many have sacrificed and died. My earliest ancestor who came in 1717 was one of 9 CT men who wrested Cape Breton from the French, and fought in 2 campaigns in the French and Indian War. I am the 9th generation and have an Army son who has served in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Iraq, which allowed me to see the principled idealism of these officers and their men who put their lives on the line to defend the Constitution. Life according to its precepts has been increasingly squandered until it is no longer recognizable. Probably the most painful thing I experienced in my life was shortly before my WWII veteran-father's death, when he said, "I used to believe in the US, but I no longer do."
    This is not partisanship or politics. It's about the peril of principle and call to personal commitment [sacrifice] for preservation of basic egalitarian values for which so many others have sacrificed. I appreciate Mr. Greenwald's passion and fine work. This book should be required reading for all US citizens.

    A bool every American should read

    Honestly, we all are aware that there something rotten in our justice system, but the behind the door extent the corruption and illegalness of our system is entirely revealed and unpackaged by this author. We cannot ask for change without the facts, and thus this book certainly will fill us in so that we can.

    Indispensable

    Glenn's book was incredible! Goes to the deep roots of the problems with the political system the U.S. If you read his blog such as I do daily, or wether you are new and would like to get a better understanding of our country, this is the book for you.

    Highly Recommend

    Well researched and written. The founding fathers would be appalled at the overt and brazen efforts of our politicians, on all sides, and the wealthy business elite to rig the system to their advantage, and at the same time rewrite the rules of justice to ensure that they will avoid any punishment for outright crimes. This book is very sad, but a necessary read and wake up call to all Americans.
