George Packer's new..., The Unwinding, got a glowing review in the New York Times this morning: "...he’s written something close to a nonfiction masterpiece."

Money quote:

If a solitary fact can stand in for Mr. Packer’s arguments in “The Unwinding,” it is probably this one, about the heirs to Walton’s Walmart fortune: “Eventually six of the surviving Waltons,” the author writes, “would have as much money as the bottom 30 percent of Americans.”
