In an era when companies go bankrupt because their officers cook the books and Martha Stewart goes on trial for insider trading, The Soul of Capitalism is a refreshing and uplifting change of pace. Journalist William Greider argues that America has the moral and intellectual wherewithal to repair the many problems capitalism has created, including the slowed economy and the destruction of natural resources. Peter Johnson presents Greider's analysis like a skillful news commentator. Johnson understands Greider's compassion and imbues the book with the right mix of emotion and emphasis to keep the material interesting. Although Greider's aspirations are visionary, his desire for a healthy and humane capitalism is worth contemplating. D.J.S.
