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.

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.
No spoilers but this does not follow the usual storyline of say.... a Rawls novel. Get ready for a refreshing difference! Kevin Pierce has quickly become my favorite narrator and his performance here will not disappoint.
Yes, the story was well done. The narration by Kevin Pierce has become the standard, the book was good but made great by Kevin.
There were so many memorable moments, it's hard to pick one. This book was hard to turn off, some of my chores were left undone.
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.
This is one of the best depiction of the economic collapse facing America today. Our treasuries are emptying and our government continues to act as though the purse is bottomless. We are no longer citizens to the government we are now the assets and product that our government uses to feed its ever growing need for money and power. This book describes perfectly how I believe the downfall will come.
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.
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...(?)
My favorite prepper/survival ebook by far !!
Hits most of the major topics in a true prepper and conservative way ! It did a great job of discussing causes of the decline in a thoughtful and complete way. It will be an eye opener for the uninitiated and further education for most initiated. I don't mind guns and violence but prefer a lesser emphasis on that then is present in many books. I found coverage of principles to be far more of the story with this book than most and that's why this is my favorite.
"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.
