About this title

Review:

Praise for "No Logo":
"A movement bible."
--"The New York Times"
"Klein . . . takes the mounting anecdotal evidence and places it in an analytical context that is articulate, entertaining and illuminating. . . . Her Canadian perspective allows her a spacious view of the terrain that many U.S. critics, obsessed with empire, often lack."
--"The Globe and Mail"
"No Logo is an intelligently written and superbly reported account of a culture that has moved from selling products to hawking brands . . . A couple of chapters in, your mind is already reeling. Klein can write: favouring informality and crispness over jargon . . .convincing and necessary, clear and fresh, calm but unsparing."
--"The Guardian"
"A riveting conscientious piece of journalism and a call to arms. Packed with enlightening statistics and extraordinary anecdotal evidence, No Logo is fluent, undogmatically alive to the contradictions and omissions, and positively seethes with intelligent anger."
--"The Observer"

"Impassioned, hugely informative, wonderfully controversial, and scary as hell."--John le Carre
"Bold and brilliantly conceived . . . Klein may well have revealed the master narrative of our time."--William S. Kowinski, "San Francisco Chronicle
""This is a brilliant book, one of the most important I have read in a long time."--Howard Zinn
"Klein provides a rich description of the political machinations required to force unsavory economic policies on resisting countries and of the human toll. She paints a disturbing portrait of hubris, not only on the part of Friedman but also of those who adopted his doctrines, sometimes to pursue more corporatist objectives."--Joseph E. Stiglitz, "The New York Times Book Review
""A brilliant, brave, and" "terrifying book. It's nothing less than the secret history of what we call the 'free market.' It should be compulsory reading."--Arundhati Roy
"Pulls the curtain back on free-market myths and exposes the forces that are really driving our economy . . . Klein's book is powerful and prophetic. . . . A brilliant dissection."--Arianna Huffington, "The Huffington Post
""Naomi Klein is one of the most important new voices in American journalism today."--Seymour M. Hersh
""The Shock Doctrine" is the defining, covert history of our era."--Jeremy Scahill, author of "Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army"
