"Randy Martin's Financialization of Daily Life is deeply immersed in its historical place and time, and as such it confronts the reader with a provocative combination of recognition and disorientation."-Culture Machine "[Randy Martin] must be applauded for his many courageous forays into the literature of financial self-management, and for the often entertainingly grotesque examples he has brought back from those expeditions."-Science and Society "[T]his is an important book which deserves to be widely read."-The Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare "By 'financialization,' Martin refers to the influence of financial calculations and judgments, and his valuable starting point is that financialization, having fundamentally altered American business over the past four decades, is well on its way to doing the same to other areas of U.S. life....His themes are superb. Martin shows how economic change operates as much at the level of lived experience as it does at the level of ideology and his arguments should interest anyone concerned with the impact of financialization on recent art and criticism."-Chris Newfield, Dept. of English, University of California, Santa Barbara

I give it 3 out of 5 stars for the following reasons:
Although enlightening, the author fills too many pages trying to sound smart with sound bytes. His style and vocabulary is also not suited to the general reader, for one needs a dictionary on hand for unusual words on about every 2nd page. Pity, because the topic needs not appear sophisticated to be informative or to appear profound.
