Take one of America's largest utilities...a delusional, error-prone CEO...a $46.5 million war chest filched from customers...California's squalid, pay-to-play ballot initiative process...what results? Hubris, overreach and venality upended by truthiness. Over-torqued battlefield dispatches create a fast-paced nonfiction novella -- a bugle call to that silent army of citizen optimists everywhere.
