The narrator's voice has so much bass in it hard to listen to in a car.

Story repeats some concepts. Gets a bit unbelievable with the continuous action when realistically improbable.

What will planet Earth be like in 20 years? At mid-century? In the year 2100? Prescient and convincing, this book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future. Never has the world offered more promise for the future and been more fraught with dangers. In this powerful and sometimes terrifying work, Attali analyzes the past and pinpoints nine distinct periods of human history, each with its world center of power and prestige, and predicts what the tenth will bring by the end of this century.

But not necessarily a "guide". Concepts presented are very general, and since its writing some have come true, however many could see these events unfolding prior to its time. Nevertheless it was an interesting read.

John Wayne projected dignity, integrity, and strength in all his films, even when his characters were flawed, and whatever character he played was always prepared to confront injustice in his own way. More than thirty years after his death, he remains the standard by which male stars are judged and an actor whose morally unambiguous films continue to attract sizeable audiences.
