I read the previous review where the writer stated that there were too many what ifs. Well, there are a lot of what ifs in life, but the general theme of this book does not rely on what ifs- it relies on previous cycles and history. The only very questionable cycle is the "terrorist cycle" which only appeared 1992 and 2001. Otherwise, I find the information credible and will prepare with it in mind. Bad news does sell, but bad news also really happens..........

The book has some interesting pints and I will definitely take demographics into account when investing. However, Mr. Dent world does not capture all factors. For example, information grows exponentially so our knowledge and innovation would also grow faster which goes against Mr. Dent's cycles. Just one example.
The biggest problem I have with the book is how repetitive it is. I think the book could of been 1 hour maybe 2.
While Mr. Dent does show many cycles in the US he sometimes uses foreign example to get his point across. If you base your theories on a US model, he should not use so many examples from countries that are not in his model. If the book was 1 hour it might be worth it but at 6.5 hours don't waste your time.
