Mr. Kunstler is obviously a brilliant person and a great writer, but even as this book is a "must read", it is also flawed in a few (very few) instances.
This book really lays out the very serious challenges we all will face very soon...It's absolutely true what Kunstler says..."we are sleepwalking into the future".
