Reviews

[C]lever and immensely appealing.
--"The Nation"

Witty and ironic--and to the point. . . . [A] necessary primer.
--"Financial Times"

Geoghegan's passing comments are entertaining and his acerbic wit fun as he buttresses his case with hard facts. . . . [P]olitical economics with a human face.
--"Chicago Tribune"

[T]ruly eye-opening.
--"St. Petersburg Times"

Geoghegan . . . once again entertains and instructs us. And by showing that a more humane form of capitalism is not only possible but actually succeeding in the heart of Europe, he also gives us hope.
--"Alternet"

Most diverting [Geoghegan] has the great virtue of being witty and ironic and to the point A necessary primer.
Jurek Martin, Financial Times

Katha Pollitt, The Nation
All dissatisfied Americans, not just progressives, should read the book.

A travelogue, self-discovery prose and business book all at once written with humor and candor, making for an easy, fun read.
