    Diaspar is Earth's last city - surrounded by deserts, on a world where the oceans have long-since dried up. It is a domed, isolated, technological marvel, run by the Central Computer. Diaspar has conquered death. People are called forth; they live for a thousand years and then are recalled, to be born thousands of years later, over and over again. No child has been born for at least 10 million years. Until Alvin....

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    In 3001: The Final Odyssey, Arthur C. Clarke brings the greatest and most successful science fiction series of all time to its magnificent, stunningly unforeseen conclusion. As we hurtle toward the new millennium in real time, Clarke brilliantly - daringly - leaps 1,000 years into the future to reveal a truth we are only now capable of comprehending. An epic masterpiece at once dazzlingly imaginative and grounded in scientific actuality, 3001 is a story that only Arthur C. Clarke could tell.

    I was hoping that the audio book would take the listener on an Odyssey through the monolith to intergalactic intrigue, not a rehash of our solar system.

    We are at a crossroads of immense proportions. Nationally, internationally, and globally, we areliving in a manner that is absolutely, unconditionally, irrevocably unsustainable. Our global economic stability is in jeopardy, our planet’s ecosystems are under attack, and our health is deteriorating. Huge changes are coming whether or not we want them, whether or not we are ready for them. How can we lead the charge to introduce innovations and solutions to meet the inevitable challenges of new kinds of economic forces?

    What did you like best about The Day After the Dollar Crashes? What did you like least?

    The very small section on what to prep for.


    Would you recommend The Day After the Dollar Crashes to your friends? Why or why not?

    Nope - not enough on how to play the coming issues. But I guess that is why he plugs his business so you can go there for the info. Smart though.


    What three words best describe Sean Pratt’s performance?

    Very Listenable Performer


    Was The Day After the Dollar Crashes worth the listening time?

    Yeah if you want a heavy dose of tree hugging


    Any additional comments?

    No its pretty straight forward in that we need to get our ECO act together, which I can get behind, but I am just not all that Ra Ra about it.

    Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet--and himself--in harm's way. An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears.
