    1. This book was a pretty good read. As many people know, there was a lot of emphasis in the last election on government spending and the debt. I wish I read this book during that time. The book provides a straight forward, simple (if not overly simplified) overview of the nation's financial condition and, in an extremely scant summary, how we ended up in this boat. The authors, by interviewing numerous politicians, administrators, and business folks, propose the condition is even worse and that ac [...]


    2. Every parent: if your son or daughter is in high school, make sure he/she reads this book. It is imperative that they are aware of the facts laid out in this book and understand the threat imposed by our country's four great key deficits --- Budget, Savings, Trade and Leadership Deficits.The first half of the book explains in simple terms the depth of our predicament with respect to these deficits. Does so in a moderate tone so as not to scare the bejesus out of your child (Adults should be frig [...]


    3. An book with an important message. The first half of the book, the part written by the authors, summarizes the perils of national debt and is well worth reading whether or not you agree with every premise or care for the simplistic tone. The second half consists of essays and interviews by/with noted economists, policy makers, and business people who have mostly been shown clueless by recent events which should have been foreseeable by anyone who passed Economics 101. The admirable attempt to pr [...]


    4. Quotes:“I’ve often found that one of the characteristics of a free society is that we are free to be irresponsible. I don’t like that fact, but the ability to do so is an essential freedom because unless you voluntarily do the right thing it’s not going to work. And if you are fundamentally an irresponsible person, no matter what government does, it'll show up in one way or another.” Alan Greenspan“Government allocation of resources has tended, too often, to misallocate, and I think [...]


    5. This book is what was later made into a documentary. The author takes a step-by-step look at what our current (as of 2009) fiscal situation in the US is. It's a scary thing to understand not only what position the US is in in terms of financial debt, but also the reasons for it. I highly recommend this one, even though it is a bit dated now.


    6. So far this book has opened my eyes further to the many lies that our elected leaders keep feeding us about the economy, debt, inflation, etc. I knew some of this before starting to read, but the examples and what certain people and groups are doing is just astounding.


    7. Definitely an eye opening view of how debt will affect us all. The book is intended as a bit of a supplement to the documentary, as the first half is dedicated to the concept, and the second half is interviews with folks about the debt situation.


    8. Pretty cool book, has interviews from several very influential economists and influential policy makers.I enjoyed it, and it was a very easy read.



    9. Best see the movieis book seemed to cover the making and essence of the movie and was hard to focus on the point--the U.S. debt is overwhelming.


    10. I read the book, probably should have seen the movie instead. The interviews are the most interesting part and why I check the book out in the first place


    11. In America, we are travelling down an unsustainable economic path. Entitlement programs are mortgaging the wealth of future generations. Interesting read that spells out the course we are on.





    12. On the rare occasion a movie is better than a book. This, for me, was one of those occasions. The movie was much more terrifying. Both, however, got the message across.
