Upside is a remarkable book which has had a truly life altering effect on me. I have recommended it to more than 2 dozen people since I finished it 3 weeks ago. Kenneth Gronbach writes like this is a thriller as he leads us through the depth and meaning of demography. In every chapter and with every graph and chart there is an OMG moment. It will most definitely change the way you look at the world and each generation in it. I am on the high end of the Baby Boomers and this book has made me reevaluate my current life path and I feel rejuvenated and empowered with this new found knowledge. Thank you Kenneth!
I haves learned so much from this book. Of course I have not read it yet only listened and what an education about counting people. This should be a must read/listen in high school or college. I'm still listening so much info and it is sinking in. Great for night time listening while sleeping. Very smooth voice to sleep and wake too. Now will look at charts and pdfs. Best deal I have purchased. If you're a coast to coast listener it's a substitute when you don't care for the csllers.
Awesome book that enlightens anyone of self worth that the "ELDERS" in this country have the most significant power to guide the legacy of our past into the future. All we have to do is VOTE our conscience, our values and our love of Mother and Father who taught us all so much. We must "listen" to our Souls and follow the Golden Rule. Surround ourselves with those that we are most comfortable and let the power of that energy enter the world's energies with light and love. Thank you for this remarkable book of counting the facts, comparing the trends and using history and logic to forecast what is around the corner, regardless of political guesswork or bully tactics. Engineer here. Thank you.
Love books on CD/tape and this is a great one. But we did find that our 2007 car would play it but not our 2007 pick-up truck because of the MP3 version that it is and I guess the truck's CD player is a bit older technology than the 2007 car. So we downloaded the "Audible" app and listened via streaming on our cell phones.
Very insightful book that explains demographic trends in a way that most people can understand, but is also sophisticated enough for investors looking for tips on what the future will bring. The anecdotes help to bring the book to life. It is obvious that significant research went in to this book. Recommend it highly.
We thoroughly enjoyed this book. The book contains demographic information that is insightful and informative. It is written with a nice flow combining statistical facts and everyday applications for those willing to consider the data.
We have recommended the book to several of our friends that own businesses because our friends will benefit from analyzing the contents of UPSIDE.
