    In The Unwinding, George Packer, author of The Assassins’ Gate: America in Iraq, tells the story of the United States over the past three decades in an utterly original way, with his characteristically sharp eye for detail and gift for weaving together complex narratives. The Unwinding portrays a superpower in danger of coming apart at the seams, its elites no longer elite, its institutions no longer working, its ordinary people left to improvise their own schemes for success and salvation.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    this book has been rated so high. I found it to be a rehash of recent economic history that we are all familiar with.


    Was The Unwinding worth the listening time?

    The New York Times best-selling author of The Roaring 2000s guides listeners through the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression. The first and last economic depression that you will experience in your lifetime is just ahead. The years 2009 and 2010 will be the initial end of prosperity in almost every market, ushering in a downturn like most of us have not experienced before.

    "Waste of Credit"
    Overall

    This is the first time that I thought a book that I chose was a waste of a credit.

    The narrative is choppy and grating. While I agree demographics is important I felt the author over focused on the concept.
