I definately think this book is "far end of spectrum doomsday", but the message transmits nonetheless. The future recession(s) will be increasingly difficult for America to withstand for reasons illustrated in "Collapse" and I think that regardless of this authors extremism, he is probably more right than wrong. This book is definately worth while.
I love books on personal development and entrepreneurship. For entertainment, I prefer the military sci-fi genre.
Definately does not reflect current state of the world. This book is clearly out of date as of this review (April 2008). If you haven't read it yet, don't.
