From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Taking on the religious, political and consumer force of the modern End Times movement, comic authors Weiner and Davilman (Yiddish with Dick and Jane) turn out their sharpest satire yet with a hysterical step-by-step financial guide for those "left behind" by the Rapture-when, according to literal interpretations of the New Testament, the faithful will be whisked bodily to Heaven by Jesus. The authors chart their way through the Rapture and Tribulation, using actual bible verses and scholarship (Tim LaHaye, bestselling author of the Left Behind series, is quoted often) to chronicle the series of plagues that make up the end of the world (war, famine, a fiery mountain in the sea, invisible horse-shaped locusts), and their considerate plans for making money in the aftermath. At times laugh-out-loud funny, this skewering volume is also a sobering look at the beliefs of many Americans, but Weiner and Davilman employ irreverence without insult, handling the highly-charged topic with a surprisingly light touch.

It is very tongue and cheek. I may startup some of the recommended businesses myself...
Bring it on!
The books is quite balanced and concise while also being direct about Religious articles and detailing of what to expect, how to best expect it and how to best make money off the years of true hell you will most likely be unable to escape. It especially helps if you have a base knowledge of Religion though that is more for the sake of the humor value, otherwise it is expressed in a more forward way that you, the reader, are aware of these themes but are given brief insights of understanding into them.
Whether you're planning out the wills of your family and friends as ' quick term investment ' dabbling in the economic markets of godless products or plotting out liquid money by turning all your money into liquids, this book has it out for the reader's throats.
Like most serious dead pan humor, this book takes itself very seriously and does not make a habit of breaking character. If you are not so much into finance self help and prep books, this may strike you as too on the nose and dull, however if you have a wicked side and know you're not going where so many people rave as the number one place to be, pull back a chair and have some laughs. It's the book the antichrist doesn't want you to read. That's saying something!
