Alas this is a very partisan and myopic, if not confused, audiobook. I was rather hoping to see a robust argument about the causes and solutions to our current economic woes. Instead I, like some others who have listen to this, have been presented with a Vickers' interpretation - in some parts ok entry level analysis - on the impeding amplification of our economic troubles. There are enough straw men arguments in this book to make your head spin. And the real rub of it all is that I can't work out Vickers' moral stand point: 'I'd like to buy the World a Coke' in one sentiment and then 'if it wasn't for those fat, lazy people on welfare...', in another. All in all, I would have preferred not to rate this book because I don't see its relevance or value - other than its cost to me. Thank God no trees were sacrificed in the production of its MP3 version. Don't forget, caveat emptor.

I was sorely disappointed with this book. It is filled with self righteous "I" statements...the author seems to fancy himself an expert on just about everything. Most of the discussion is eat right, stay healthy, recycle, etc....all good advice, but not what I expected from this book. The investment strategy information is minimal and followed by statements that while an industry or fund may appear to be one of the sound investments for the future one cannot be certain without extensive research....then the author concludes with information on how to establish an account with his brokerage firm!! He downgrades the marketing industry and has then succeeded in getting me to buy a book which is one big advertisement...I feel duped!

If you believe that the environment our concern for the environment should take precedence over our concern for human life, then this book is for you. If you believe that turtles and trees should be given the same rights as humans, then this book is for you. If central government and the new world order is something that you look forward to, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Personally, I can't imagine what Glenn Beck was thinking about when he recommended this book. The author even alludes to pulling the plug on Granny in order to save on valuable resources. I thought I would receive valuable insight on how to handle the expected crash of the dollar. Something in the order of where to invest my funds. Instead, I was flooded with new age nonsense about the coming emerging consciousness of humans with the planet. I felt as if I were reading a Bruce Lipton book. I strongly recommend you don't waste your credits on this book and instead purchase ???How to Survive the End of The World As We Know it???.
