    My take Working in natural resources, I found this book very valuable reading, though am somewhat less sanguine about its conclusion that a radical transformation in public trust is so readily on offer My view is that people are inherently lazy and find changing their views inconvenient Categorically casting big business as shady saves a lot of mental spadework of figuring out who are the good and b
