Molly Parker Myers narrates with authority, warmth, and, at times, outrage. Her range of expression is essential for this hybrid audiobook, equal parts memoir, muckraking, self-help, and history lesson. The premise is that dwindling federal oversight and increasing corporate governance have recast consumer rights as civil rights, contributing to the nation's great wealth divide. How can we eliminate predatory lending when there are more "payday shops" in the U.S. than McDonalds? How can we guarantee product safety when companies like Fisher-Price and Peloton promote a blame-the-victim narrative? The author humanizes many of the issues with personal stories--for example, her immigrant parents' experience with purchasing a home. The author's prognosis and Myers's chipper narration provide a hopeful arc for this thoughtful audiobook. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
