Reviews

"With a passion for the truth and an eye for detail, Arianna Huffington reports on the hijacking of democracy. Read it and weep--then head for the barricades. We have work to do."
--Bill Moyers

"A rousing call to action against special interests that have all too often triumphed over the national interest. As only she can, Arianna Huffington breathes energy and passion into the reform agenda. A withering, breathtaking, quintessentially controversial book that will inspire, inflame, and educate."
--Senator John McCain

"Arianna Huffington has always been willing to speak and write with conviction about the world around her. Her sharp wit and thoughtful commentary help put issues on the agenda ignored by conventional thinkers. I'm certain, that with her powerful new book, Arianna Huffington will be stirring the waters for some time to come."
--Senator John Kerry

"Arianna Huffington's project in this wonderfully scathing, wonderfully researched, wonderfully readable book is to rescue capitalism from the CEOs. Every player in the recent go-go market owes it to himself or herself to read Pigs at the Trough and agitate for the reforms that might yet save the system. "
--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

"Pigs at the Trough is a great read, hilarious and horrifying. Arianna Huffington is a world-class wit who makes a Fortune 500 trip to the woodshed seem like flirting."
--Aaron Sorkin

"Arianna Huffington has written the most entertaining tour guide to hell since Virgil led Dante through the Inferno. Crooked CEOs beware!"
--Bill Maher

"Wonderfully incendiary and right-headed . . .Huffington is mad as hell, and rightly so."
--Esquire

"Huffington indicts with precision, verve, and sparkling wit."
--Barbara Ehrenreich

"Arianna Huffington makes an appealing and compelling argument for the repeal of human nature-that part of it that indulges savage, unconscionable, and despicable greed."
--Walter Cronkite
