If you're looking for a book that will give you investment tactics for to hedge against the dollar...don't get this book. It rants about a whole bunch of nothingness that has nothing to do with the title...surviving.
There is a significant amount of information here and it is worth the read, however you really need to listen carefully. Vickers is very informative as to how we got to where we are. His solution, a Central Government, is unacceptable.
This is the same tired liberal propaganda with an act of balanced point of view.
There are so many wild unsubstatiated claims within the first half of the book, it became intolerable. Revisionist History 101...
This book isn't good, it's no where close to what the title suggests it's about. There are some useful snippets of knowledge hiding between all the liberal talking points used by the author to project his view of world piece, big bad oil company's, and how stupid people are messing everything up. If you feel the need to be told how we all need to change and live side by side with the animals and work harder to save the earth (population control) then you'll love this book.
The title is quite misleading. I was looking for practical advice for an everyday person to be prepared for the days, weeks, months after an economic collapse. He briefly mentions stuff I already knew. It's in chapter 6 if you want to just listen to that. The other 9 chapters are a bunch of ramblings about how we need to stop being jerks to one another and just go ahead and welcome in this new world order stuff instead of fighting against it. I listened to 90% of the book. I tried to get some meat out of it so I listened intently, but then lost most of my respect for the author when he started talking about how we need to be ready to accept the one new world leader that will rise up and take charge because he will only be doing it out of selfless love for all of mankind. Right.
I'm open minded about new age concepts but his opinions were a little over the top for me. If you're not a hardcore new ager, you'll definitely hate this book.
very slow and I listened to a tongue lashing on how I'm killing the ecology. honestly the author needs to read some opposing scientific viewpoints before browbeating the reader
I will never read, or listen to, this author again.
Repetitive and vague, utter waste of time.
Details would have been nice.
Complete disappointment. I don't want lofty, vague idealism; I want facts.
The author only has about four points. All of them are vague, idealistic and lack details on what to do about them. Don't waste your money or time! He says in 1,000 words what could be said in 10 words.
If you point out specific flaws in a book, audible will delete your review. But it's ok if you just say a book is "garbage."
This book ranks right at the top with the amount of detail and accuracy. It was laid out very well. Must read / or isten too.
It is very informative, but I wouldn't call this a book. It is all over the place from monetary policy, to the environment to the world government to how you should talk to your doctor to how to invest your money.
Pros: Informative. Non partisan approach to politics
Cons: Scattered. At the end, he throws a pitch about his investment group. That was a bit disappointing to me.
