New York Times Bestseller National Book Award Longlist Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2017 Donald Trump's takeover of the White House is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. His reckless agenda--including a corporate coup in government, aggressive scapegoating and warmongering, and sweeping aside climate science to set off a fossil fuel frenzy--will generate waves of disasters and shocks to the economy, national security, and the environment. Acclaimed journalist, activist, and bestselling author Naomi Klein has spent two decades studying political shocks, climate change, and "brand bullies." From this unique perspective, she argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst, most dangerous trends of the past half-century--the very conditions that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism the world over. It is not enough, she tells us, to merely resist, to say "no." Our historical moment demands more: a credible and inspiring "yes," a roadmap to reclaiming the populist ground from those who would divide us--one that sets a bold course for winning the fair and caring world we want and need. This timely, urgent book from one of our most influential thinkers offers a bracing positive shock of its own, helping us understand just how we got here, and how we can, collectively, come together and heal.

Excellent book.
.
I listened to the CD version, and really liked the woman voice of the woman who read it too.
.
Naomi Klein is an incredible wordsmith, and uses an engaging narrative, to connect and make sense of a variety of important recent events. There is a much bigger picture -- one that is largely not explained by any of the media -- but Klein shines a light on it.
.
I kept wondering throughout -- "What would be the response of Trump supporters to the facts that she shares?" I'd like to know.
