One of Taibbi's great skills is to make complex financial, political and other intentionally Kafkaesque bureaucratic institutions relatively clear to the lay person. He does this with a sense of humor rooted in easily relatable righteous indignation, rather than the smugness of a P.J. O'Rourke or ego overload of Hunter S. Thompson. Griftopia is the most lucid account of the financial collapse I've read, and it also does a good job of explaining how wretchedly awful Obama's health care "reform" actually is. As angry and disgusted as I was made to feel reading this, it's one of the few books I would recommend to everyone I know, just so we're all on the same page regarding how fucked we all really are.… (més)

Given that it was essentially a complication of material, it seemed to run together after a while, but the theme of the media critique is worth part of the time spent reading it.

I don't have a lot to add to what some other's have written about this book. Having lived through these financial events and experienced the frustration, as a working stiff, of seeing mega-assholes fuck up the economy then get bailed out by the taxpayer, it is nice to find a writer who actually CALLS them assholes.

Yes, that is kind of a petty way to feel, but I'm good with it.

It feels really good to read something by someone as truly pissed off about the economic situation as Taibbi is. He's not a financial reporter. He has not drunk the CNBC Kool-Aid. There are parts of this book (notably the chapter on Alan Greenspan) that feel a tad drawn out, but overall, his rage against Goldman Sachs and the rest of the crooks is sustained and deserved. It's a good read if you're feeling disillusioned by the state of things.
