Liberty minded individuals and those who believe in the Constitution will find this near future dystopian novel to be right up their alley. Those who are looking to be more informed about the potential threats to America's financial stability will learn what to watch for and how to prepare themselves for an economic collapse.
America is on the cusp of financial annihilation. Matt and Karen Bair face the challenges of Main Street during a full scale financial meltdown. Government borrowing and monetary creation have reached their limits. When funds are no longer available for government programs, widespread civil unrest erupts across the country. Matt and Karen are forced to move to a more remote location and their level of preparedness is revealed as being much less adequate than they believed prior to the crisis.
Meanwhile, Paul Randall, a third party presidential candidate arises to push back against the welfare and warfare spending that have bankrupted our country. While he has gained expansive acceptance, the fight has just begun. Paul Randall proposes a plan to mitigate the coming hyper-inflationary collapse which is a mathematical certainty. His plan is known as The American Exit Strategy.
American Exit Strategy uses survival fiction to take an in-depth look at the real life politics and economics behind the issues that are likely to trigger a currency collapse or financial meltdown in the near future.
American Exit Strategy is a work of fiction…until it becomes history.

Started out promising then it turned into a literal reading of the bible. I learned that "Jesus will curse you if you do not serve him joyfully and he will put an iron yoke on your neck until he destroys you" I added that last bit to fulfill the minimum length for then review.
I love me some audiobooks
Yes. As a matter of fact I'm on my second listen. Some of the chapters of this book seem ripped from the headlines... of our near future!
"Patriots" and "One Second After" come to mind, with a little A. American thrown in.
Everything. Scott Brick or Joe Barrett would have been sooooooo much better.
Al Mohammad. Is anyone not going to know the author was describing the high an lofty BHO??
This is a very plausible scenario for the collapse of the USA. The story was hindered by the narration but not such that I couldn't connect with it. This isn't an in-depth survivalist guide but you will learn a lot from this book.
This book will make lefties cry and exhibit signs of road-rage.
Really,there is 45 min of story and the rest is repeating remarks,what they are eating and Bible quotes.And the most boring reader of all times.It really is bad.And when he reads the Bible quotes he gets even more remote sounding.
No. The path ends here.
The author preaches his political and religious views, wastes time with direct reads of long Bible passages, and uses the character dialog to self promote his Web site a podcasts.
The basic story is passable, although the prepping information is rudimentary at best. Mostly, the smug self promotion along with a condescending espousing of his political and religious views make the book wearisome.
No, there have been fantastic books in this genre and i'm certain there are many more. This will not be one of them. Preaching from the pages of a survivalist novel.... didn't make it through chapter one.
Starts slow but picks up as it get into it. At one point an entire chapter out of the Bible was read, I feel that picking out points from the chapter would have made the flow a little better. Over all i liked it and am looking forward to the next two books in the series.
Didn't get very far through the book since I got very tired of all the bible quoting and political agenda pushing. If you think Obama care is going to cause an apocalypse, are Christian, and get really excited about 2nd amendment issues you'll love this. Otherwise, you may not.
Will not be getting the rest of the books.
I like apocalypse and TEOTWAWKI books but in this one the story is made second to promoting a political and religious agenda. I stopped listening to it after about an hour and won't finish it. Very disappointing. It's ok for an author to let their politics and religious beliefs become apparent in a story but here the story is used as a vehicle to get up on a soap box. Its bunk. Get off your soap box and just tell a good story.
Voice was fine.
I look for 3 things in prepper fiction 1 - disaster plot development, 2 - interesting character development and 3 - prepper hints and ideas. This story was, as a first effort, surprisingly good at all three and I anxiously await the rest of the story! The constructive criticism - contractions are normal for conversations! The narrator improved as the story progressed so I will allow for that as a positive as well.
Bravo Mr. Goodwin!
So far all the books I have listened to are in the "Post Apocalyptic Survival" fiction. This is also the genre I've been reading over the last 3 years. As far as listening to a story, this was read flat and sometimes was like being read a field manual. As I paid attention, and like the information provided, I listened closely and found his reading manner appropriate.
Paul Randal- the President,
His clear pronunciation.
Maybe a little scary, being so probable..
I like this story, the style somewhat reminded me of James Wesley Rawles series..I consume books of the genre, but spit out the stories filled with gratuitous violence. I consider them as something of a guide to prepare for the things to come...(?)
"A little clumsy but well worth the listen"
Relatable, Possible, republican
Buggin out to be with Adam and the family, the robbery, the changing neighbourhood back home
Yes though his delivery doesn't flow to the same level that other narrators do, the warmth in his voice makes up for some of this though
the description of the farmhouse matt would look at buying
A little two dimensional on the characters, a little to obvious on the correlation on real life people being named incorrectly on purpose from real life like obama. I do agree with alot of the view points from the series tho and I do feel it shows somewhat a possible future, the fact that all the nations lend and borrow on gold that they do not currently owe, the fact that hyper inflation is a real concern world wide, and the impact on that. I feel that the government in these books is a little more extreme and I worry that the work may be dismissed summarily because of this despite a lot of the founding issues being relevant.
