My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is an excellent visualization of the state of our country’s finances and why you should be concerned about it. While I actually “read” it in the unabridged audible version, I ended up buying the paper version as well because it is absolutely laden with graphs, charts, and pictures that visually illustrate the discussion and are extremely well done.
Make no mistake, this is a Glen Beck book and therefore there is a considerable amount of bias. But just as the leftward bias of many authors shouldn’t keep conservative-minded individuals from reading some of those books (The World is Flat; Hot, Flat, and Crowded), the same should be true for liberal-minded individuals when it comes to reading a book like this.
We, as a country, are long past the point at which we can continue to put our heads in the sand and continue to dole out entitlements without concern for the budget or where the money is coming from.
