Praise for Endgame

"This is an extremely powerful, sobering, well-written and highly accessible book. It will demonstrate to you why there are no painless solutions to the mounting debt problems around the world—something that too many people are yet to realize. It will take you on a well-documented journey through the debt supercycle, making stops around the world and at critical junctures. And it is a must-read for anyone wishing to understand the global debt dynamics and ways to protect against its bad consequences."
—Mohamed A. El-Erian, CEO, PIMCO, and author of When Markets Collide

"No one has thought more creatively about the economy. Mauldin's weekly newsletter is a must-read, and his book is even more important if you want to understand a rapidly changing world."
—Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the House of Representatives

"Successful investors explore all possibilities. You should read this book so you can succeed in case the Endgame is our future."
—Jim Rogers, author of A Gift to My Children

"I read everything John Mauldin writes. He travels the world and shares his financial stories like a good friend sharing a drink. Mauldin is that rarity—a skeptical optimist—who calls 'em straight and rewards his clients and fans."
—Rich Karlgaard, Publisher and Columnist, Forbes magazine

"There's clearly something important going on in the world economy. Something big. Something powerful and dangerous. But something as yet undefined and uncertain. We are all feeling our way around in the dark, trying to figure out what it is. John Mauldin must have night vision glasses. He does an excellent job of seeing the obstacles. You should read this book before you knock over a lamp and stumble over the furniture."
—William Bonner, President and CEO, Agora Inc., and author of Dice Have No Memory and Empire of Debt

"Endgame is not only a highly readable and informative account of the causes of the recent global economic and financial meltdown, but it also provides investors with a concrete investment strategy from which they can benefit while this final act in financial history is being played out."
—Marc Faber, Managing Director, Marc Faber, Ltd., and Editor, Gloom, Boom&Doom Report

John Mauldin is neither a pessimist nor a market/political cheerleader. "Endgame" simply explains the political and sociological processes that have led America and the world to the difficult economic place that we find ourselves in. It is becoming evident to almost everyone that difficult fincancial decisons must be made at every level; from federal, state and local governments to businesses, individuals and families. "Endgame" makes it clear that there are no easy, pain-free choices remaining but that the worst course of action would be to try to continue "business as usual". Far from being just another expose of failed policies, "Endgame" provides both educational insight into economics and policy and potential courses of action that politicians and individuals may choose and possible results of these actions. If you care about your financial future, you'll want to read "Endgame" more than once!

Amid all the postmortems of the 2008 recession, this might be the bleakest. Financial gurus John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper argue persuasively that no quick recovery is on the horizon. Instead, the world’s economies face years, perhaps decades, of tepid growth, roller-coaster markets and high unemployment. The authors combine their analysis with research from a variety of economists to reach the conclusion that deficits will continue to grow and politicians will continue to avoid making hard decisions. While their rambling reasoning is sometimes disjointed and their analysis presents nothing startlingly new, Mauldin and Tepper make an informed case that investors, consumers, managers and policy makers need to prepare for a rocky future that’s nothing like the comparatively easy years of the recent past. getAbstract recommends this sobering look at the future as important reading for those who want to follow the full spectrum of analysis.

"Takes a very complex subject & makes it reasonably understandable. Bottom line: There is no way the world economy (or the US economy) can possibly get better for any significant amount of time, without first getting worse. The only question is how much worse. Will we make the tough decisions to immediately accept and minimize the pain? Or will we make the politically easier decisions to procrastinate and thereby increase the ultimate pain?"

The text is fine bur due to the nature of the book (finance) there are quite a few charts & graphs that are almost impossible to read. I will probably have to buy the hard copy so I can get the information.

J. Mauldin clearly describes how and why the current world-wide economic challenges with debt are different from the business recessions endured over the past 60 years, and what you can do to protect your portfolios.

I sure can't decide anything about this book based on the 1 line "sample." 23 pages. Supposedly. But when that includes a table of contents, an acknowledgement, etc, etc, there is no sampling. Based on this I can't buy the book.
