    Approaching this book hoping for an in-depth discussion of how and why "the market triumphed" I felt a little disappointed upon completing it. To be sure, Herman produces some quality invective and makes some cogent points. But, there is rather too much rhetorical flourish and not enough depth or theory to properly address the issues involved. This book is essentially a series of short essays taken from various radical publications (chiefly Z magazine) about an assortment of issues connected to Approaching this book hoping for an in-depth discussion of how and why "the market triumphed" I felt a little disappointed upon completing it. To be sure, Herman produces some quality invective and makes some cogent points. But, there is rather too much rhetorical flourish and not enough depth or theory to properly address the issues involved. This book is essentially a series of short essays taken from various radical publications (chiefly Z magazine) about an assortment of issues connected to "the market" to varying degree. Some chapters are boring rebutalls of particular books or attacks on inidivual journalists which don't make for an interesting read if you're not familiar with the subject of scorn. However, where Herman does hit the mark he makes for an entertaining and convincing read. But, if you want a serious book which really addresses the power of market forces and the consequences for humanity you'd be much better turning to something like "The Great Transformation" by Karl Polanyi. Herman's book might find a receptive audience among those who already share some of the underlying assumptions and starting points but he's unlikely to convince anybody else.
