3.0 out of 5 stars "Moneymavericks92@Gmail.com" Decent Teachings On The landscape Of The Crisis And Potential Post Crisis Scenarios, 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The End Game: The End of the Debt SuperCycle and How It Changes Everything (Hardcover)
As i'm sure everyone here reading this knows, there has been allot of pessimist running around preaching their "End of the world" sermons. I for one, do not trust the intelligence of people who just read any random articles they can find on the internet that caters to their belief systems.People don't verify their information when they learn it, a much needed habit that we should have in our society of today. Especially since this is the information age. I wanted an unbiased opinion, from some people with a comprehensive and credible understanding, and although the authors are optimists I would say that they did give a fairly decent and unbiased opinion on what's to come

The Author's sure do know what there talking about. But I do have some (two) quarrels with this book. For one the pacing was rather to slow. I found my self with a pinch full of pages (about 50-70) and all I managed to learn was that "The US is coming to an end of the debt supercycle, the deleveraging will be painful. some countries (i.e.Greece) will be in much worse shape than others. I'm certain that the information could have been sufficiently condensed down to much less pages without being difficult to comprehend. And secondly, my discontent has to do with the fact that this book felt completely derivative to me, completely derivative of other's work that is. I really disliked the constant referencing, I don't have a problem with a little referencing here and there, in fact I welcome it, but this book was going a bit overboard in my opinion. But I guess that may not bother other readers

Verdict:
If you do not have any respectable understanding of how this current economic crisis may unfold, then this book shall serve well. I disliked the pacing and constant referencing, but still i recommend you pick this up.

Physical Quality:
The book is published by Wiley who have a good history of producing strong books. The hardback is strong, the jacket is decent. And the text is of fair size.
