Dreamland : A Self-Help Manual for a Frightened Nation

£24.99

Product description

"Dreamland deals with subjects that can give most people a glazed look in a manner that makes them interesting and enthralling being written in generally short pithy chapters with wide margins for notes making it easy to read. It is full of witty observations and word picture illustrations that make the reader view things they thought they knew about in a completely different light as the author takes the reader on a journey that questions the nature of reality and views it from a different perspective...The author looks at the underbelly of business and democracy in the context of Iceland and shows the reality of the greed of big business and government. It details the destruction of our planet in following the heavy industrial trail of carnage involved in smelting aluminium - questioning the relationships that are involved, the hiding of truth for gain, for expediency. It explains facts in a context that is easily grasped by both experts and the ordinary man/woman in the street." (Amazon review). Good copy. Bottom edge of front cover slightly worn. Front cover marked
