Meet the Author

Dmitry Orlov was born and raised in Leningrad, USSR and immigrated to the United States in the mid-seventies. He was an eyewitness to the Soviet collapse over several extended visits to his Russian homeland between the late eighties and mid-nineties. Dmitry is an engineer who has contributed to fields as diverse as high-energy Physics and Internet security. Starting in 2005, he has written extensively on the subject of the approaching collapse of the United States, and the many similarities and differences between the post-American and the post-Soviet experience. Dmitry sees his mission as a public service: in his numerous articles, presentations and interviews he has argued that collapse of the US, although inevitable, is survivable, given the right attitude and some timely preparation.

A wake up call with a sense of humor. Dmitry Orlov shows that we are not the first country to have the economy collapse and others have made it through. I hope we are as lucky as the former Soviet Union was. Denial time is over.

Once you begin to understand what we're facing, there comes the issue of heading into it square on. For most Americans, the psychological hurdles are larger than the physical. Orlov's is the best book I've found at getting me over myself, and making me look past the apocalyptic romance BS of collapse. Imagine living, sort of okay with it, well into the fall of industrial civilization...
