“This book is clearly pandering to those who already feel the way the author does - that society (ie, the rich) isn't taking care of the working- to middle-class well enough. It is just the same argument over and over, extended through many examples and statistics.
It's actually a bit depressing and cynical. The author will use an example, like a successful artist that has sold out art shows, movies made from her scripts, and great reviews in the New York Times. But even with all this success, this artist can barely survive and has a huge amount of credit card debt. If she can't survive even with all this success, how could you make it?
After you read the first chapter, you will know all you can learn from this book.”
