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.

One of the best survival novels of all time

I am a bit of a prepper/survival novel junkie, and this is one of the best. Goodwin does an amazing job at combining current events, compelling characters, and an imaginative story all into one outstanding package. This is a must read for any patriot or post-historical fiction fan. Loved it!

if you want a look at our world when this false economy collapses this is a good place to start.The references going back to our founding fathers are startlingly accurate .

not what I thought I signed up for

Too religious for my taste. Had the summary mentioned that the book is written in a religious manner I would not have bought this book. The story line was awesome, but I do not recommend this book unless you want to go to church reading it. I want my money back.

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.

Too much political commentary

What disappointed you about American Exit Strategy?

I love survival stories, I love Narration by a Kevin Pierce, however if I wanted a book that pushes their political viewpoint, that's what I'll seek. I couldn't even get past the first chapter. I tried twice. It just irritated me too much. If you are a staunch right-wing Republican, you might love this book. I wanted a book on survival. I didn't find it here.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'll look for more by Franklin Horton. He is right winged, Bisbey he can write in a way that all ppl can listen and enjoy.

Super Good

What did you like about this audiobook?

The entire thing. Storyline, narrator, and for sure the Christian flavor.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

We always love learning so much about the many aspects of preparing.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Absolutely, the information on preparation is threading throughout the story in a very easy flowing manner.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

nothing

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.
