Well, I'm not sure what Mayor Mike thinks of BROKE but it was sweet to log on Twitter a few days back and read this tweet posted by the book review editor at Bloomberg News: "Bloomberg's Jim Pressley, master reviewer of all finance books, loves 'Broke USA' by @grivlin"

Lots of quotables in this review that describes BROKE as a " queasy journey through what he calls 'Poverty Inc.,' the business of making money off Americans who scrape by on jobs that pay $30,000 or less a year."  I'm "thorough and thoughtful,"  I'm "even-handed" and this Rivlin character also "eschews hyped language and lets the evidence speak for itself."  I'm apparently also retro:  "Rivlin, a former New York Times staffer, is what we used to call a shoe-leather reporter."   I also like that Pressley ends his review declaring BROKE "required reading for elected officials and lenders alike."
