    Weisman visits an extraordinary range of the world's cultures, religions, nationalities, tribes, and political systems to learn what in their beliefs, histories, liturgies, or current circumstances might suggest that sometimes it's in their own best interest to limit their growth.

    Greg Peterson says: "Arduous at best, yet there are redeeming qualities"
    "A very important book"

    Where does Countdown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audio books I've ever listened to. The performance is engaging, the writing uses a very accessible narrative story telling format and the subject matter is extremely important and timely.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    An incredibly important and very frightening topic was made very human by examining the case studies through the eyes of real people experiencing the consequences of Overpopulation first hand. The history and personalities that brought us this far and show us the path forward are presented in an engaging and accessible manner.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read. Right up there with "World on the Edge" and "Collapse". A very loud warning bell and call to action.
