Some really over the top comments here. Short, punchy pieces by gadfly Barbara Ehrenreich, best known for "Nickeled and Dimed." She covers everything from health care to George W. Bush to worker's rights (A favorite theme.) to feminism. If you're liberal, you'll probably agree with everything she says. If you're not, you'll disagree with almost everything, so I'm not sure who this book is for. She's like Michael Moore in that sense, but way less obnoxious.
