I'm glad that Derber wrote a book about corporate power because I think it was definitely needed and I think that this being written in 1998 (the height of the Clinton era) makes it seem extremely prophetic.

That being said I also thought that Derber rambled and repeated a lot. I wasn't hooked at all times and my mind tended to wander. Maybe too much overlap with some of his other writing. I would like to see a more succint focused book on this topic by Derber.
