    Reads like a poorly written magazine article that has been unfortunately dragged out into a full length book All hype and no substance how many different ways can he really say, production has gone digital I ll be honest and admit I didn t read the whole thing I set it down halfway through Was going to read all of it before panning it like this, but decided it wasn t worth the time Anderson s lack of understanding of the economists he tries to draw on to make his points just became too Reads like a poorly written magazine article that has been unfortunately dragged out into a f...
