    From the author of the New York Times bestseller Mind Wide Open comes a groundbreaking assessment of popular culture as it's never been considered before: through the lens of intelligence. Forget everything you’ve ever read about the age of dumbed-down, instant-gratification culture.

    Interesting, fun and varied.
    [Audible: I would rather use the guided review form, but if you then ask me to give three describing words, try first removing the minimum limit of 15 words, okay?]

    The electricity has flickered out. The automobile age is over. In Union Grove, a little town in upstate New York, the future is nothing like people thought it would be. Life is hard and close to the bone. Transportation is slow and dangerous, so food is grown locally at great expense of time and energy, and the outside world is largely unknown. There may be a president, and he may be in Minneapolis now, but people aren’t sure.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, for a stark wake-up to our lifestyle's wekanesses and societal assumptions.


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Howard Kunstler? Why or why not?

    Yes, he has an intelligent but alternative view on things-


    What about Jim Meskimen’s performance did you like?

    Overall good, a little overdone on some characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
