Overview

In Becoming China’s Bitch, Peter D. Kiernan presents an unflinching manifesto in which he explores five factors that keep us frozen. He then uncovers the ten challenges that pose the greatest threat to our future. Presented from a fresh yet informative perspective, these ten impending catastrophes include our semiconscious dependency on China, our lack of a coordinated intelligence effort, our downward-spiraling health-care and education systems, our missing-in-action energy policy, and the continually expanding problem of illegal immigration. In a logical, personal, and persuasive voice, Kiernan then offers radical yet practical solutions that every American must acknowledge and act upon—before it’s too late.

A book that tackles so many third rails of politics, it practically hums with an electric current. I'm betting it will be called incendiary for being commonsensical and will be anathema to the far left and right--that's how you know it's worth reading!

I found this book to be precisely what we need right now, to avert the ten major calamities towards which we're veering speedily and wrecklessly like a car out of control while the government is paralyzed by extremes of partisanship.

I bought this book thinking it was about CHINA. Nope, look closely at the title, it is one of TEN items, and it is the very least of the book. In my opinion the title was slapped on by the publisher because our reliance on China was in the news a lot at the time, and they thought it would sell the book. Very little is about China. Basically it is the author standing on a pulpit spewing his views on one thing or another. Many of his views and use of bad logic annoyed me. I have to say it was interesting but I felt ripped off as I read it once I realize I have been duped by the title.
