This is an excellent book. For a non-fiction book about a terribly depressing topic, it was exceptionally riveting. Klein delves into lots of seedy places, but also has much to say about the subversive elements attacking advertising. She also doesn't shy away from illuminating the irony that often demolishes all hope of subversion. Comparing it to How Luxury Lost It's Luster, I think that No Logo is much more satisfying. Although, my interest in the book might not have been so keen if I hadn't read How Luxury first. How Luxury left me feeling hopeless, and distraught. There are lots of moments where No Logo definitely feeds these emotions, but I left the book, ultimately feeling better. Possibly this is a result of the highly organized explanations, and organization of the text. It gives so much information in such a logical, and effective manner, that one can't help but be moved to a place of greater understanding. This is a good thing, and good feeling.
