I'd like to start by saying that Greg Palast's writing style drives me mad. He writes like he talks—in rapid spurts, jumping from topic to topic without the slightest explanation of where his rambling story is headed or why he's telling it in the first place.

If you can somehow mine your way through this convoluted text, however, the reward is entirely worth it. Palast's reporting is top-notch and his courage in confronting the powerful with their own bold-faced lies is unmatched.

Even if you refuse to read most of this book, the data and charts it provides are invaluable in explaining how the American government has screwed both the developing world and its own population for the benefit of a very select few.
