About the Author
CHRIS MARTENSON and ADAM TAGGART are the co-founders of PeakProsperity.com, where they have been educating millions of readers about the risks in our Economy, Energy and Environment systems since before the 2008 crisis. With degrees from Duke, Cornell, Brown and Stanford between them, both held executive positions in companies such as SAIC and Yahoo! before consciously opting out of the corporate life for a more meaningful purpose: to build awareness of the looming changes the next 20 years will bring, and to help concerned individuals take prudent action in advance.
They both moved their families to more rural, self-sufficient locations with strong community engagement, and launched the website PeakProsperity.com. The website is visited by 4 million people a year, and its video series The Crash Course has been viewed over 15 million times and translated into over 12 languages.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There are major trends in the world that likely will shape our way of life over the next several decades. With that in mind, if you’re uncomfortable with the assumption that “they” will take care of what’s important, then this book is for you. The authors present a case for individual resilience – having the right mindset and performing the right actions to prepare yourself and family by knowing how to “do some useful things, keep a deep pantry, know your neighbors, and help when you can.” The book examines eight forms of capital each of us have and how we can develop them. Even if the authors are entirely wrong about the future, everything they recommend is still worth doing.
