Provocative political commentator Arianna Huffington yanks back the curtain on the unholy alliance of CEOs, politicians, lobbyists, and Wall Street bankers who have shown a brutal disregard for those in the office cubicles and on the factory floors. As she puts it: “The economic game is not supposed to be rigged like some shady ring toss on a carnival midway.” Yet it has been, allowing corporate crooks to bilk the public out of trillions of dollars, magically making our pensions and 401(k)s disappear and walking away with astronomical payouts and lavish perks-for-life. Making the case that our public watchdogs have become little more than obedient lapdogs, Arianna Huffington turns the spotlight on the tough reforms we must demand from Washington that go beyond the Corporate Responsibility Act.

    " I don't understand this woman. I wish she would stop writing. She's not good at it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 9/3/2013

    " It was interesting to read this now because it compares to the current financial crisis. Many CEO's and businesses acted in the same manner as the organizations mentioned in this book. Also, it was witty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 6/5/2013

    " This five-year-old book should be required reading. The concepts the author discusses directly led us to the economic crisis in which we now find ourselves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/26/2013

    " This book is hilarious and eye opening. Another reason to hate "the man." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 11/30/2012

    " Arianna Huffington knew about Wall Street greed long before the fall of our economy. When our jobs went overseas and our CEO wages went sky high, the writing was on the wall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jahan | 10/17/2012

    " A good read, especially if you want a broad overview of how business has co-opted politics (in detail) and you enjoy some humor to leaven your outrage. Arianna is a gifted writer and the book is well researched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 4/2/2012

    " Not a big fan of the author but she does a good job on this one. Overview of corporate excesses and greed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 1/16/2012

    " Early Huffington.... she had it pegged! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Carney | 1/15/2012

    " I don't know what some of the negative reviews were about. Personally, I read it just for Arianna's sarcasm and mockery. Now I can't go 12 hours without checking huffingtonpost.com. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt | 11/9/2011

    " This is full of great information but the writing isn't very good and it's very slow reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanie | 6/16/2011

    " Great for any woman struggling to become 'more'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lani | 5/12/2011

    " Yes, I actually read this. A family member gave it to me, saying she thought it was helpful. Not too helpful, but not badly written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami | 10/7/2010

    " got this book for free and realized after that i would have paid for the book. it was very good. the author is someone i admire and her stories are interesting and translatable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 8/28/2010

    " Good insights into the way women behave. Got tedious at the end, but opened my eyes to some interesting information. Hope I can remember to use it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/11/2010

    " Arianna Huffington doesn't mince words and she has written a book about embracing life as a woman, in all aspects. A couple of chapters are a little tedious but overall the book is great. Clearly she walks the talk as the Huffington Post is her success. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 6/2/2010

    " Huffington has that Joseph Conrad quality of "holy shit, how is someone writing in Engish as a second language with such clarity and precision?" She's candid and self-aware, and it's really a good read. "
