"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"--Amazon.com

You can read an excellent review of this book on the Real Change website; realchangenews.org just type 'No is Not Enough' in the search box.

Better than THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING because of its slimmer size and greatly reduced number of footnotes, NO IS NOT ENOUGH is an excellent, concise intro to Naomi Klein's published work. Trump is the personification of modern corporate theory on hollow companies and the primacy of branding, which Klein covered in her first book, NO LOGO. Trump also personifies Klein's SHOCK DOCTRINE, having stepped out from his father's shadow during the mid-'70s NYC financial crisis to buy the Commodore Hotel at a fire-sale price (and fleecing the city of many millions in tax revenue). What's best about NO IS NOT ENOUGH is how Klein keeps bringing the discussion back to neoliberalism. Both Democrats and Republicans govern in its thrall. It's the doctrine that markets are always right and the public sphere is better after it has been privatized and the more corporate-managed multilateral trade deals the better. It is a bankrupt ideology that gave us Trump who won by running against it, saying he was going to tear up NAFTA and declare China a currency manipulator on day one of his presidency. Nine months later voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin are still waiting.

Re: previous comments: Hm. It would be nice to have a review that actually addresses the book and its contents rather than making uninformed ranting personal attacks.

You have got to be kidding me? The leftist ideology is killing this country. So blinded by fake news they are openly welcoming jihad into our country! Little do they know their immoral Godless heads will be the first to roll in the end.

[The day that Klein begins finally referring to the Bush Crime Family, and the Clinton Crime Family and the Trump Crime Family will be the day I would ever begin paying any attention to her.]
In the past I've considered Klein to be something of an uninforming lightweight, not given to providing much damning information. After her attacks on Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks' Julian Assange, I no longer even consider her that - - just a temporal honeypot, someone or group who wastes thoughtful people's time, or a redirection specialist, not worthy of attention [somewhat like Antonia Julasz, the oil company // activist \\ who NEVER, EVER names any names, doesn't believe such people as owners exist, and she surely will never acknowledge any!!!!].
