I read a little over 400 pages of this book before Christmas and then put it down for quite awhile. I needed a break from the list of realities that Klein describes. I'm really glad I picked it up again and finished it. There is no doubt that she stretches her point at times to fit her argument, and I know that others have disagreed with her read on some of representations of economists and economic theory, but I was impressed by her breadth and focus and most importantly her passion. It was a pleasure to read a book by an individual who is clearly outraged, yet able to clearly and carefully construct an argument. I'm eager to read more on neo-liberalism and economics.
