You definitely want to read this book. It's creepy, but it helps to explain those people who everyone thinks are great, but there's just something a little off about them. And how about those people who do malicious things to you, and nobody knows they're doing them, and you are supposed to take it because it's all your fault, and in reality, it's them? Gives insight and tools. Read it if you're interested in human interactions.
If you think our political system is corrupt, then nothing here will surprise you. However, it's an amusing read on some pretty distressing topics, if you have any concern at all for what's happening in our nation and our world.
This book is dated, but that can be a blessing sometimes. Sure, some of what's contained here is less relevant, but some of what's here shows that some very insightful people have been calling for change in our government for a long time...change that still has not happened (think: campaign finance reform). Plus, it has some wonderful Texas wit and expressions.
This book gives some good information on the culture that has been deveoping in this country. It isn't all flattering, but in some ways, it also gives insight into ways we can improve ourselves. It is, if nothing else, quite eye-opening.
This book isn't as revolutionary (in a violent sense) as the title might imply. It tells of how corporate interests control our government, so it is not a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, so much as it is a means of catering to the super-wealthy, who one might say can do a pretty good job of catering to themselves without our help.
Perhaps irreverant, this book does give good advise for women between the wise-cracks. And some of the humor will make you laugh out loud, unless you are typically uptight, in which case, most of what I read would probably not interest you, which makes me wonder why you'd come to my site.
If you've never paid attention to the effects of advertising on all our lives, particularly on the psyches of girls ad women, this is a good book to check it out.
This book explains marketing aimed at young children and teens, particularly teens. It is not the best written book I have ever read, and some of the information feels redundant or judgmental, but at the same time, it does make the reader much more aware of unethical business practices from our advertising professionals aimed at the most vulnerable group of people in the country, and points out how it works so well because parents are guilt-laden and instead of spending good time with their kids spend extra money on them. I think this is a factor in the prevalence of ADD/ADHD, but that's just me.
