really liked it

"Liked" is the wrong word for a Naomi Klein book. As usual, she does an awesome job of exposing a travesty of rich entitled capitalists exploiting a system they've rigged to strip assets and well-being from ordinary citizens -- in this case, the storm-battered and serially colonized islands of Puerto Rico. I'd love to believe the small sustainable local infrastructure innovations of local residents can prevail, but it's a Sisyphean battle. I wish Klein had more explicitly defined the epithet "neoliberal."
