So, yeah, there is a lot of bullshit out there, and this book only skims the surface. She could have expanded on a lot of the topics, but the fact that she didn't does kind of give it more readability. She talks about PR, insurance companies (those fuckers!), the media, advertisement, and of course the Bush administration. There wasn't a whole lot in there that surprised me but it was enjoyable and I did pick up some interesting nuggets. Plus it was pretty funny! I read some of it to my boyfriend and he was laughing and going, "Wow...really?!?!" too.
I didn't really think she was pretentious... actually cussing pot smokers are usually the least pretentious people I know. :P
