I think this book will forever change the way I look at politics and government. Whenever I read a news story about what the government is up to, I'll now view it through my "Shock Doctrine" filter and wonder what they are really trying to accomplish as they distract us with bullshit. I admire Klein for writing this important book, even though it contributed to my deepening cynicism about America, it's role in the world, and it's economy.
