Bit of a fraud,this guy.I'm glad he was against the war,but that could just be acting.
911 was an inside job.Read Thierry Meyssan's books on the Pentagon fraud first.It's the real thing.

in The winner stands alone, Paulo uses it's eagle eye to penetrate into the inner lives of the very rich and the ""seeking richness at all cost""" people.
the setting is the Canned festival and there are different characters all connected trough their power hungry journeys.
Personally I think Paulo needs his own soul searching since the whole books in nothing but statement of someone who cannot stand anybody who can have more money than him.
sure he gets acclamation from a lot countries like his own Brazil, where people have to believe than money is the root of all evils....good for nothing..and the old one; money doesn't make you happy.
Paulo is a crusader who likes the acclamations of people who understand very little of the experience to be wealthy. The fanny thing is that he himself doesn't came from a very poor background and is obvious that has made a fortune out of his twisted point of view.
this book is for the angry wealth haters..
