Publisher's Summary

Recovery? What Recovery?

Did you lose money in the stock market in the last financial crisis of late 2008?

Has your home lost value?

Are you "underwater" in your mortgage or concerned about selling?

Do your dollars buy less than they used to at the grocery store and the gas pump?

Have you lost your job or know someone who did?

Are you worried about the safety of your money and investments?

Don't get fooled again! While the "experts" want us to believe that all is well (or will be soon), nothing could be further from the truth. The worldwide financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 was just a sneak preview of what is to come. For those who act quickly and correctly, there is still time to protect yourself, your family, and your business in the next global money meltdown. The Wall Street Journal business best seller Aftershock can help you:

  • Protect and grow your assets before, during, and after the next global financial crisis
  • Spot and cash-in on the best new investment opportunities
  • Know which jobs, careers, and business sectors will fare the best
  • Profit rather than lose when asset bubbles collapse around the world

What the Critics Say

"Their scenario is dark, and their strategies bold and unconventional. But after being on target the last time they went against the grain, the Wiedemers merit being heard out." (The Associated Press)

"Surrounded as we are by growing talk of recovery and news about 'green shoots,' it's still refreshing to consider the different perspective that Wiedemer, Wiedemer, and Spitzer offer here." (Robert J. Hughes, SmartMoney)

"Aftershock makes a compelling argument for a chilling conclusion. Their track record demands our attention." (Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's)

    "ADVERTISMENT for Aftershock financial services"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is an ADVERTISMENT for Aftershock financial services, complete with 1-800 numbers repeated many, many times.


    Has Aftershock turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christopher Kipiniak?

    ?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Aftershock?

    the 1-800 numbers for one thing


    Any additional comments?

    While the authors may have some valid points, they have lost credibility with me by taking the advertising approach. The intended audience appears to be people with high mortgages and high credit card debt and with the advice to file bankruptcy, don't pay your credit card debt or pay your mortgage, these Wiedmer's sound more like criminals that someone I would trust with an investment strategy.

    Story
    "short in info, long on verbiage & promotion"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was heavy on verbiage and promotion of their investment management firm.


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    Very little useful information on investment options.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was fine.


    What character would you cut from Aftershock?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    A summary of the book would be. The dollar will collapse and inflation will rise due severe monetary expansion. Stay in short term bonds, sell real-estate, buy gold & silver and hedge against the dollar. Enter the market only after it's severe collapse. Now you can save 12 hrs of listening.

    "Not the version I wanted"

    This is the older book. I was looking for the latest version. Found it and bought it. Too bad I wasted a credit on this one. :-(

    Story
    "WELL WORTH THE TIME"
    What did you love best about Aftershock?

    It was easy to understand and was mostly free from technical gibberish.
    It painted a clear and disturbing picture which will impact on all of us.
    I liked it especially in that they do not expect you to just accept their conclusion; they give you their reasoning and it is their well thought out reasing which is really valuable.
    It is mostly common sense - but it helps you to see through the BS that is fed to the public which prevents a public uproar.

    I found the book highly profitable. I was going to buy into the US property market; but after hearing Aftershock, I have abadoned that idea. It has also helped me see why my shares were doing poorly. The Macro picture is vital to micro investing.

    The chapter about economics and new theories etc was not as engaging as the first part of the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not applicable


    What three words best describe Christopher Kipiniak’s voice?

    The Narator was excellent


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the time.
    It could save you thousands of dollars

    Just some guy that likes to listen to things that inspire thought. I've grown tired of the insipidness of music and opinion pieces that now pass for "news". Just looking for inspiration and education.

    Story
    "Started out strong"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    While I like a lot of the education that comes with learning how and why the American economy may soon fail, I sorta felt like I was being sold GOLD. Seems like 2/3 of the second part was BUY GOLD, BUY GOLD, BUY GOLD.

    If nothing else, the book does make perfect sense on why the economy is about to fail, but I feel like buying gold is somewhat pointless. The strenuous viewpoint on divesting on real estate seems a bit like flawed logic. They also say to sell your home and just rent. If the economy fails, people will need a place to live. Seems like rentals would be a rock-solid industry. Even if they can't pay in cash, it sets up an excellent opportunity to barter.

    I liked the book. Not sure if it'll be as doom and gloom as the author would like to believe.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    How the American economy has gone wrong.


    Did Aftershock inspire you to do anything?

    Re-balance my portfolio

    "Scared the S#it out of me"
    Any additional comments?

    This book puts what I have been seeing and thinking into context that makes too much sense to dismiss. Bubble economy and the underlying economic principles- or lack there of is truly scary and if true when the final bubbles finally burst will signal the end of life as we know it.

    Story
    "A Sobering Alarm"
    Would you listen to Aftershock again? Why?

    Yes. Because it is rich in vital financial information. If the authors are accurate in their prophecy of doom, only a fool would hear and not prepare.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There weren't any characters really to choose from. Just a few anecdotal short stories of a few people. One of which, saved only half his assets because he doubted the information he was given. Another was a woman who liquidated some or most of her valuable art pieces and was grateful that she did.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Kipiniak’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never heard of him prior to this performance; but he was very good.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The dollar's impending destruction, and what I should be doing to prepare for that era on the horizon. As a result of this information, I actually sold out of some of my stock holdings, and invested into to physical gold backed gold ETFs. Both are up already by several dollars, and I have not had them three weeks yet.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is extremely important for the near and destructive future; yet many will not receive it. "He that has an ear, let him hear..."

    Story
    "Read whether you believe or not"
    What did you love best about Aftershock?

    The information and the way the author breaks down aspects of economics.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    During the reading of this book, certain events started to happen just as the author said it would.


    What about Christopher Kipiniak’s performance did you like?

    Very good. Easy to listen to.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That gold was going to run a ten year bubble.......very curious to see if it happens.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this as a read whether you believe their theory or not. Once you get past their plugs, the information makes you look at things from a different angle. I am definately a bull investor, but after listening it made me look at possibilities of alternative exit strategies that could make me more money.

    "Very Depressing"
    What made the experience of listening to Aftershock the most enjoyable?

    I don't doubt the authors research or predicitons. According to the authors we're in for a really rough ride and nothing can really be done about it. How sad, what a great country we once were. Happy Independence Day!


    Any additional comments?

    I just thank God that America, the world for that matter, are in His hands and not really predictable at all. Peace out!
