      Naomi Klein, sometime in the early 2000s, became widely seen as a voice for the movement of movements, the anti corporate globalisation movement that demonstrated such power in confronting the WTO and other institutions of global capitalism in the late 1990s and early 2000s As so often happens in these kinds of cases, it was hard not to get the impression that as a journalist and analyst she was expected also to provide solutions of the here s your ten point programme for the revolution kind of [...]

      I will normally only allow myself to be depressed by a Naomi Klein book with about the frequency that she writes them, but seems like this half decade s getting a double whammy HopeIDontKillMyself

    3. Bettie☯ on said:

      Description Trump is extreme but he s not a Martian He is the logical conclusion of many of the most dangerous trends of the past half century He is the personification of the merger of humans and corporations a one man megabrand, with wife and children as spin off brands This book is to help understand how we arrived at this surreal political moment, how to keep it from getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can flip the script and seize the opportunity to make things a whole lo [...]

      My Key Takeaway Advocate what you are for, not what you re against Voice it.This is such a contentious issue that I don t think most people will read it I was a bit hesitant, but I have to say that while this is a progressive, left leaning book, Klein does an excellent job supporting her position, whether you agree with it or not.This is interested in framing the problems that led to where the US, and the world, stands in regards to governance The decisions we make as populations by our choice [...]

    6. Katie on said:

      What I liked the section about superbrands, and their role in politics the idea of shock politics and exploiting moments of crisis to roll back democratic rights was interesting, although I d have appreciated in depth exploring of this happening in various case examples Chile in the 70s, Russia in the 90s, etc culture jamming was a new term to me and I can see how it could be an effective mode of non violent resistance the book is very current for example, she writes about how culture jamming F [...]

      I received an ARC of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.Klein s book is a timely look at what Donald Trump has done in the presidential office in just a few months, as well as in previous years, and how we might be able to triumph over his policies She analyzes his use of branding, his obsession with winning and wealth, and his approach to wars and fossil fuels most are connected to one another and are likely to exacerbate the problems throughout the world, such as refugee [...]

    8. Peter Mcloughlin on said:

      I haven t read Naomi Klein before but her ideas around branding and disaster capitalism and the shock doctrine are key to understanding what is happening to us Especially how all the forces that have been dragging down democracy for the past fifty years have culminated in the person of Donald J Trump He is the naked embodiment of every bad political trend and instinct of the right in one man Klein doesn t merely leave depressed and bewildered by the ugly forces arrayed against ordinary people sh [...]

    9. Frances on said:

      Naomi Klein writes books that I will drop everything to read and No is no exception First she breaks down why everything is awful and then builds you back up with why it doesn t have to be awful Wonderful

    10. Rhys on said:

      No Is Not Enough reads like an expanded magazine article Naomi Klein is a gifted writer who is able to convey issues that span the particular to the universal She studiously avoids jargon, which works for her writing.This book places Trumpismo as a natural outcome of four decades of neoliberalism, resulting in gross economic inequality, resource wars, de democratization, and climate disruption culminating in much greater precariousness in the lives of average citizens Klein deconstructs Trump an [...]

    11. Anna on said:

      Written with impressive speed after Trump won the US presidency, No is Not Enough surprised me by being the most encouraging thing I ve yet read on the subject Fittingly, I read it during the weekend, when I have a policy of completely avoiding the news Regular breaks from the endless slew of Trump and Brexit horrors are essential for basic wellbeing, in my view In the first section, Klein basically synthesises a thousand thinkpieces I ve read over the past year, to conclude that Trump s victory [...]

    12. Clifford on said:

      I will almost certainly never read another book by Naomi Klein She is infuriating, pompous, condescending, opinionated a very bad trait in someone who calls herself a journalist , and self aggrandizing I expected this book to be mostly a re hash of all the horrible things we know about Trump, and it was But Klein s gratuitous swipes at Hillary Clinton were pointless She whines that people like her have been blamed for Clinton s loss, and well they should be Sure Sanders had some good ideas and a [...]

    13. Grady McCallie on said:

      This book is maddening I have read articles by Naomi Klein before, but not her books, and thought I should Her message is pretty direct 1 Donald Trump is not an aberration, but the culmination of trends she has described in her previous books, including the rise of branding, the triumph of neoliberalism, and neoliberalism s use of shock tactics to advance bad laws and policies that democracy normally blocks 2 It s going to get worse under Trump before it gets better 3 We re in this mess because [...]

    14. Mehrsa on said:

      This was one of the better post Trump books that I ve read Klein has been at this for a while and she connects several of her earlier theories to the current climate the shock doctrine, neoliberalism, climate change etc But I ve never been able to fully connect with her vision and at the end of the book I figured out why She believes in utopia and she wants to govern accordingly She was a big Sanders supporter I was a tepid Clinton supporter I understand the problems with neoliberalism, but I do [...]

    15. Joachim Stoop on said:

      Naomi Klein delivers one or two books per decade that are quintessential in facing the state of the world and the stride against injustice against people and our planet.She is always so well documented, nuanced, pugnacious And she writes in a very clear, understandable manner Read her books, because they are the most important and urgent ones around.

    16. Roman Clodia on said:

      The left wing almost wins of the past two years are not defeats They are the first tremors of a profound ideological realignment from which a progressive majority could well emerge just as geopolitically significant as the rise of authoritarianism and neo fascism on the right side of the spectrum Although this has been driven locally by Trump s election, Klein s analysis has global relevance outside of the US While much of the book is a depressing analysis of how neoliberalism has fostered greed [...]

    17. Philippa on said:

      A compelling read I did find it a little preachy in places which, although I tend to agree with what she says, makes me feel uncomfortable I don t think there is one single answer or one root cause to the problems in the world today but I think the general change Klein is promoting sounds really sensible and plausible Definitely worth a read.

    18. Ram on said:

      In this book, Klein explains how our life is ruled and dominated by brands Brands that have nothing to do with quality, but are all about the name and all about making money for a small group of people The big brands do not sell products, they sell their name, that is put on a product that they have very little to do with it s manufacturing a race toward weightlessness whoever owned the least, had the fewest employees on the payroll and produced the most powerful images as opposed to things, won [...]

    19. Victoria (Eve's Alexandria) on said:

      I listened to this on audio, read by Klein herself, and found it both inspiring and motivating She writes with such clarity about our current political and economic situation It s a polemic, has a clear agenda and rehashes the arguments of her previous books, but the way she applies them to the specifics of 2016 17 is masterly If you re left leaning and want to know about movements for change, then this is the book for you Read it now while it s fresh out of the oven.

    20. Kelly on said:

      This was my first Naomi Klein book and certainly won t be my last She is one of those prominent voices I knew of and somehow hadn t got round to digging into yet.I found this book to be a focused, lucid read I d be comfortable recommending it to almost anyone as it does a great job of grouping themes, breaking up ideas into digestible sound bites, and drawing broad strokes through timelines I d say it is an easy read, but for the subject matter of stark geopolitical and social realities So I ll [...]

    21. Arielle Walker on said:

      Naomi Klein is so effortlessly readable surprisingly so, with the intensity of the topics she covers This books manages to stoke even fury at where the world is heading, before leaving you with hope it s not over yet.

    22. Andrew Price on said:

      You can never go wrong with reading Naomi Klein She really is one of the most important writers of our time, I daresay.While I would ve liked to see endnotes in the book as per her usual format, she points out in the intro that all sources can be found on the book s website She also explains that she did not want this one to be a great tome as her three other masterpieces have been I respect that.The main theme running through here is that Trump is not some sort of freakish aberration, something [...]

    24. Radiantflux on said:

      66th book for 2017.I have had a mixed feelings about Klein s books, but I really enjoyed this one Her analysis of Trumpism seems spot on, and very much like that her arguments that any counter resistance has to offer a positive vision, and not just be anti Trump Will probably mostly appeal to those on the progressive side of the Democratic Party.
