Even though I have not finished this book I rated it very high because of all the research and details the authors went to in showing how all this
problem came about and I am looking forward to their solutions to the
problem we and and the younger generation are facing. Our kids need to
be taught from this book because informed minds are our only way out of
this financial predicament we are in. Austerity is not a bad word. If we all practiced it a little more and stop the "instant gratification"
behavior the USA would be a much stronger country.

This book should be required reading for everyone, especially senior citizens and members of Congress. The only qualifier I would add is that the statistics, while instructive, tend to overwhelm the middle few chapters. Except for that, I would have given the book a 5 raqting. Having said all that, the opening premise and the willingness to offer real solutions is worth wading through the data. Read it then do something to help make things better.Was this review helpful?
