As a public figure, Ralph Nader is virtually without parallel, playing a lead role on the national stage for nearly four decades. Since the time he rattled the automotive industry with Unsafe at Any Speed, Nader has played David to a series of formidable Goliaths-General Motors, Microsoft, the pharmaceutical and auto insurance industries-until 2000 when he took on both major party political candidates. In this last campaign he managed to skew the election while endangering the very causes he had spent his life espousing. The mystery and controversy surrounding him will draw readers to this revealing portrait.
