Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Almost Prophetic!!"
    Would you listen to American Exit Strategy again? Why?

    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!


    What other book might you compare American Exit Strategy to and why?

    "Patriots" and "One Second After" come to mind, with a little A. American thrown in.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Everything. Scott Brick or Joe Barrett would have been sooooooo much better.


    Who was the most memorable character of American Exit Strategy and why?

    Al Mohammad. Is anyone not going to know the author was describing the high an lofty BHO??


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Unfortunately to close for comfort."

    The book is eerily coming close to reality. On 5/20/16 not there yet but it's that's its headed in this direction. Well done Mark. May this Book bless those in some way.

    Story
    "Wow. Surprisingly excellent, Sobering."
    Would you listen to American Exit Strategy again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen again. Interesting, scary, credible scenario. I would like to listen again and go back to catch some things again. It is a good story.


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

    Yes, I have listened to Kevin Pierce before. I have heard a few stories with him and I like him, I find his voice comfortable to listen to, good delivery, good pace.


    Any additional comments?

    The social, political perspective is a different point of view from my usual perspective, but it was well presented and gave me a lot to think about. I don't agree with everything but it's good to see things from various perspectives.

    Story
    "Not Your Average Prepper Novel"

    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.

    "Kevin Pierce, great narrator!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story was well done. The narration by Kevin Pierce has become the standard, the book was good but made great by Kevin.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of American Exit Strategy?

    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.

    Story
    "Starts slow but I give it an over all four stars"

    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.

    Story
    "A little clumsy but well worth the listen"
    If you could sum up American Exit Strategy in three words, what would they be?

    Relatable, Possible, republican


    What was one of the most memorable moments of American Exit Strategy?

    Buggin out to be with Adam and the family, the robbery, the changing neighbourhood back home


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Pierce?

    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


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the description of the farmhouse matt would look at buying


    Any additional comments?

    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.
