At first I was turned off by this book. In the first part of the book the author treats the reader like a third grader. In a section entitled ???Why Greece Matters??? the author, in a letter which he apparently wrote to his own children, first begins with a 15 minuet preamble where he repeatedly stresses that he is about to tell us why Greece matters. I couldn???t bear it any longer, so I left the book alone for a couple of months. Finally after finishing other similarly themed books such as The Real Crash by Peter Schiff, which by the way makes many of the exact same arguments, I decided to keep reading. I was pleasantly surprised. The book is actually filled with all kinds of in-depth and interesting details about market risks, debt troubles, inflation and deflation possibilities. It also includes some very specific predictions country by country towards the end. It seems that the authors??? are just not use to relating their knowledge to a general audience.

The book is extremely well-performed and well-written. It builds complex concepts from simple ones and uses a style that delivers similarly-concerning messages for different countries in fresh ways. I kept looking forward to coming back to the book and hoping I could reach the end before one of the many economic time-bombs went off.
Read it and start voting for people who will make hard choices quickly.

I have read/listerned to over 300 investing/finance books and this one is right up there with the best of them. I can honestly say the author's understanding on the end of the debt cycle is second to none. 10/10
This is an essential aspect of our world that you must know about. John Mauldin is an astute observer of what is going on out there - contrarian but far from cuckoo.
