I kept thinking there would be a point to this excruciatingly long (18 hours) book. Basically, the message of the book is that financial bubbles are an inherent part of human nature; fiat currency (paper money) never works; Allen Greenspan did nothing but inflate bubble after bubble; the dollar is bound to fail; eventually, and probably sooner rather than later, there will be financial ruin; gold is generally a good idea, but, at this point, there is really nothing one can do to avoid the coming financial collapse. The book is punctuated with quite a few interesting historical examples, but meanders from topic to topic like a drunk in search of a new bar (the authors like to make statements like that). This book is terribly in need of (1) extreme pruning, and (2) a point. There are lots of books with a similar point of view. Peter Schiff comes to mind. Peter at least gives some ideas about how to deal with the rapidly falling dollar. As for this one, my advice is don't waste your time. If you are bound to try it, listen to the last two or three hours and you will get the gist of it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Financial Reckoning Day Fallout to be better than the print version?
Yes, because you can re-listen to drive down the points being made. It is harder to do this when sitting down with the book. It is a book that can be listened to many times.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Financial Reckoning Day Fallout?
The clear analogies relating to the poor economic policies being fostered by our government.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I cry for our country and for our children.
Any additional comments?
Those unfamiliar with Bonner and Wiggin will love their use of metaphor and their clear style and humor.
