Shhh! Don’t Tell Anyone About This Book

I am going to let the cat out of the bag: John Perkins has a knack for writing books that people want to read.

First he wrote Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, which spent more than a year on bestseller lists such as BookSense and the New York Times. Then came The Secret History of the American Empire: The Truth About Economic Hit Men, Jackals, and How to Change the World, a book I noticed the other day is now out in paperback.

“The Secret History of the American Empire” is an exposé of international corruption — and what you and me can do about it. Says none other than Howard Zinn of this book: “A sweeping, bold assault on the tyranny of corporate globalization, full of drama and adventure, with devastating stories of greed run wild. But Perkins is undaunted, and offers imaginative ideas for a different world.”

How do I know things that are supposed to be secrets? I shop at the right places, I guess.
