So funny and very , very disturbing,
This review is from: Jennifer Government (Paperback)
I picked this book up when I noticed it was recommended by Naomi Klein of 'No Log' fame - so I guessed what it might be like.
I work in marketing for a software firm and practically the whole book is just extrapolating the marketing trends and business attitudes that are visible today (although I've never shot anyone to increase software sales ..) - but it is done so well. I read the first chapter - and laughed out loud because it was so funny - then as I went on through the book it became more and more disturbing because I could see how this could happen.
I think it would make a great film but only if it retains the sensed of humour that runs right through the book.
I think its a great wake up call and very provocative - globalisation and marketing get a throughly deserved sideswipe in this book - and you get a good laugh - Enjoy !
