Reviews by Bookery Staff and friends
Are you one of those people who reads those "Average Yearly Wage" polls in the New York Times and wonders why your annual salary looks more like Jesse Helms' I.Q. than a livable wage?
Would you like to make a practical difference in society without leaving the comfort of your own home..nay...your own COUCH?
Then relive the glory days of one of television's finest moments and breathe a hearty sigh of relief that you're not the only intelligent, pi$$ed-off person left on the planet. I can remember tuning into "TV Nation" and wondering if the show was real or not. I couldn't believe someone was getting away with anti-corporation, guerilla-journalism on national television. Not only is this a well-written document of the show by film-maker Moore, and his wife Glynn, but it's as intelligent and informative as his other work of genius "Downsize This!".
This stuff is non-comformity and rebellion by the rules. No need to smash the system, just use the existing structure against itself...all served to you, the reader, in handy, bitesized chunks.
Loved it!
