This was a fascinating read, even while managing to be deadly dull. I wallowed through Sach's chapters on restoring failing economies, because we can all use more fibre in our diet. It was nutritious reading, and a meaty chunk of modern history. This followed his enlightening opening chapters on why we've gotten into this mess in the first place, and let's face it, rich and poor, we're all in this together.

Although I feel that I'm on the bottom of the ladder, if understanding economic reform is concerned, I appreciated Sach's view from the top--even more so when he reminds us that we are each responsible for our particular effort to make a difference. I'm starting from the bottom, but hey, I'm starting, and that means with personal strategic growth, not government handouts, thank-you!
