    " This book connects the dots over what's been going on in the third world with multi-national corporations over the last decades. It describes in detail how unscrupulous international businesses operate in these countries, to the detriment of the people. It also outlines how these same corporations have become influential in the US government and how they affect policy making to their advantage. The author knows what he is talking about, because he worked for such a company and writes from personal experience. "
