5.0 out of 5 stars Control Is Just An Illusion
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 23, 2021
I bought this book used and as you can see from the photo the issue is that the cover is a little faded, apart from that the rest of the book looks and feels brand new. A great investigated journalist, this is the second book I have bought from the author Eric Schlosser. If you don't want to know a terrible truth about the world we live in and how poorly important infrastructures and industrial accidents are managed, secured and then covered up then don't buy from this author, he shines a light on something the whole world takes for granted from our leaders and the people they put in place in regards to top level national security and a total respect of the lives of their citizans and their safeguard to prevent all catastrophic destruction at all costs. This as Eric Schlosser proves is all just an illusion and that the reality is horribly terrifying. A great work of out and something that should be taught in schools.
