In his giant New York Times best seller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction. What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction. No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

Gripping...entertaining...disturbing.

I put Steyn in the same column as Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, and other deeply conservative thinkers and compelling communicators.

Steyn brings a well-traveled, common sense perspective to the subject of America's decline. He is obviously an avid student of history, geography, demography, politics, etc. Yet, he offers a nonacademic sense of our nation's trajectory.

You can choose to pass on this book, yet none of us can pass on the inevitable collapse of the modern welfare state.

Finally, Steyn, himself, narrates this book in his very engaging style. I really like his radio voice, and I love his narrative voice. I only wish he also narrated America Alone.
