    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
