Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the only person I have heard who seems to have the total picture and the guts or the insanity to actually say it out loud."—Glenn Beck

"This book is a MUST READ for everyone—especially those who still believe Big Government can solve all our debt problems, forever postpon the day of reckoning, and grow even bigger in the years ahead!" —Martin D. Weiss, New York Times bestselling author

"This powerful book tears away the illusions generated by politicians, media, and the financial industry in their efforts to maintain the status quo. So many years ago, Damon and I felt this would end badly, but we never thought it would get to this extreme. He puts into words what too many people don't want to think about or prepare for. The Day After the Dollar Crashes is a must for anyone who wants to survive and prosper in today's unstable economy."—David Tice, President, Tice Capital LLC

"Damon Vickers wants you prepared for an unpredictable future. Are you? If not, time to wake up."—Michael W. Covel, Bestselling Author of Trend Following and The Complete Turtle Trader

"The Day After the Dollar Crashes is Vickers at his best. He lays out the facts in his characteristically straightforward, no-nonsense style. He develops his thesis in compelling, short, to-the-point chapters—and he has plenty of concrete suggestions for personal survival—as well as a plan for how we might be able to turn it all around and create a new and sustainable world society."—Ed Seykota

"Though we differ on solutions, Vickers' well argued financial warnings are miles ahead of the 'everything is fine' crowd."—Robert Prechter, Elliott Wave International

Like many who bought this book, I was made aware of it and Mr. Vickers by seeing him on the Glenn Beck program. Beck devoted an entire program to illustrating what could happen in the days leading up to and following the collapse of the US dollar. It was an intriguing thought experiment, but a lot of details were glossed over during the show, which I chalked up to the realities of television and guessed that the book would provide the detailed analysis that was missing from the broadcast. The chapter on the actual dollar collapse is a scant 20 1/2 pages, with generous margins, font size, and spacing reminiscent of some last minute college papers. I now understand why the broadcast was devoid of further analysis--there wasn't any more depth in the printed material. I wasn't looking for a detailed personal economic survival strategy, but a well-thought out wargame experiment by someone with the knowledge and experience to make realistic projections. Mr. Vickers' timeline progression (which spans only 5 pages) waffles between the macro and the minutiae, some realistic, some ridiculous. But at the end of it all it still doesn't answer the questions everyone has: "And then what? And what does it mean for me?" If my only issue with the book had been its failure to deliver on its basic premise, I may have given it 3 or 3 1/2 stars. Unfortunately, I continued reading after Chapter 6 and was treated to Mr. Vickers' flight of fancy comprised of a sophomoric mixture of liberal internationalism, environmentalism, post-modernism, and post-nationalism all glued together with the author's Buddhist sense of "oneness." The second half of the book begins with describing the resultant New World Order after the dollar collapses. While this rises above the typical conspiracy theory boilerplate of secret societies, world governance, and one currency for the world, it seemed very unimaginative. It took me awhile to determine if the author was warning against this or parodying it, until I realized he actually was espousing this as a plan so that "we can truly start to live on this planet in harmony and embody John Lennon's dream for people to live as one (p. 124)." As I read the last chapters I realized I was the victim of a bait and switch. I was reeled in by a scary thought experiment of the US dollar crashing, but instead, was served a platter of The World According to Vickers. Topics range from the environment, antibiotics, holistic medicine, genetically modified foods, hydrofracking (a process used in mining natural gas, and apparently especially disdained by Mr. Vickers by its several mentions throughout the book), hormones, pesticides, BPA, factory farming, fossil fuels, alternate fuels, oceanic acidification, and recycling. Perhaps the most tragic flaw in his argument of a global central government creating supranational policies to deal with (ironically) the size of individual states' governments, emergency response, monetary policy, currency transactions, sustainable resource management, and protect cultural identities is his own distrust of governmental bureaucrats in regards to health care: "The entire medical profession should be involved in restructuring this system and not leave it to our government bureaucrats, who have repeatedly proven their lack of understanding of anything having to do with money, war, food, business, the environment, or health (p. 160)."

Very poorly written . A book about numbers should have accurate numbers ? No such luck here . Example there are 53.5 million folks on Social Security not 7.7 million. Many , many other silly mistakes . He drones on and on about global warming . He owns a private jet , need I say more? Don't let the Glenn Beck endorsement fool you . This guy is Very far left . Clearly Mr. Beck did not read the book.

Vickers must have cut and pasted from over the internet; Then re-wrote the words into his own. Glen Beck must have had a little too much drink before writing his review.

Check out his website, he only manages accounts with balances over $500,000! Doubt that most of his suggestions for preparing for the dollar crash will help the small guy. But if your are Warren Buffet, he's got a service for you!

I often don't write anything demeaning about a particular book, even if it takes some form of energy to write one sentence on a subject. But this book doesn't deliver it's promise, especially the title of this book. When I read the title of this book, I thought it would be my worthwhile time to learn something about the coming financial crisis on the U.S Dollar. This book doesn't even deliver what it promised me as a reader. The author is clueless about world events and knows very little about how the financial world operates that will lead to this coming crisis. The worth of this book is just the title to the book and nothing else. I've spent nearly 20 bucks for nothing. I should of purchase a book by Peter Schiff or Mike Maloney, two good authors that know what they are talking about.

I was very disappointed. On page 84 the author states "While WWII was raging, the United States until the very end when we rode in to save the day" After that, everything he wrote seemed hypocritical. he insists we crowd into cities yet he commutes 40 miles each way. He also seems to be naive. He seems to think a new world order will be different than the one we have now.

A wake up call? Reality check? Very interesting theory, just hoping it doesn't get put to the test.

This book is 95% accurate, and should be circulated throughout the United States and World for all to read!! Rarely does a Non-Fiction, survival guide, economic predicator, touch the heart of it's reader. You have touched my heart, and have earned my upmost respect.
