The book was well written and explains why America is on an unsustainable path, but the author does not make it clear why the end is going to be awesome, except to hint at ways that technology can be used to help individuals bypass the hazards and obstacles. I would have liked to see footnotes or endnotes to document where the information came from.

Never has the end of the world as we know it seemed so utopian. The invisible--and seemingly,magic--hand of the marketplace is going to solve all of our problems. Privatizing prisons works so well--at killing the inmates because the profit mongers do not want to spend money on their care. Being in prison should not be a de facto death sentence. Charter schools do not, as a group, do a better job than the educational colossus he so deplores in delivering measurable gains. At least he doesn't have a shrill tone. Still, the changes that he lusts for would cause tremendous dislocation, real physical harm to many and would further lead to the socioeconomic stratification that putting the market winners and manipulators--i.e. the rich--in charge has caused, so far.
