Description

Optimistic About America’s Future?
Don’t Be.


In his giant New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction.

It’s not just our looming financial collapse; it’s not just a culture that seems on a fast track to perdition, full of hapless, indulgent, childish people who think government has the answer for every problem; it’s not just America’s potential eclipse as a world power because of the drunken sailor policymaking in Washington—no, it’s all this and more that spells one word for America: Armageddon.

What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction (and the odd Greek or Islamist riot). No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

With his trademark wit, Steyn delivers the depressing news with raw and unblinking honesty—but also with the touch of vaudeville stand-up and soft shoe that makes him the most entertaining, yet profound, columnist on the planet. And as an immigrant with nowhere else to go, he offers his own prescription for winning America back from the feckless and arrogant liberal establishment that has done its level best to suffocate the world’s last best hope in a miasma of debt, decay, and debility. You will not read a more important—or more alarming, or even funnier—book all year than After America.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 27, 2013 – The celebrated management consulting company exerts an influence that varies from benign to malign, according to this revealing, if conflicted, history. Financial journalist McDonald (Last Man Standing) traces McKinsey’s rise to the pinnacle of corporate advice peddling and its unique pretensions and privileges: its elitism, decades-long engagements and lucrative open-ended contracts; its symbiosis with the Harvard Business School, whose newly minted grads dole out wisdom to experienced executives under its auspices; its aura of intellectualism, which sometimes amounts to vague buzz phrases and invocations of “change”; its reliance on alumni who helm other companies and steer business its way. McDonald, a contributing editor at Fortune, can’t quite decide whether this is all good or bad, or whether he’s indifferent. He credits McKinsey with rationalizing business practices and forestalling corporate mistakes, but charges it with standing behind blunders and bankruptcies from Enron to GM; he wonders if the firm is less about helping companies make better products more efficiently than giving doctrinal cover to CEOs’ impulses to slash payrolls. McDonald combines a lucid chronicle of McKinsey’s growth and boardroom melodramas with a serviceable, if sometimes cursory analysis of evolving—or at least retreaded—management theories. But the larger import remains, like that of the corporate world it symbolizes, a contradictory muddle.

Customer Reviews

Prepare for the worst, pray for the best.

Mark is one of the better writers out there as far as putting together facts and making them digestable. I like his style and the fact that he can take devestatingly depressing info and find some sarcastic humor in it. I only wish he would fill in for Rush more often.

The world as it is and may become, not the tune of hopeychangey

An impressive view of the reality of America and Western nations rather than the willful ignorance of the statists bent on bankrupting the world. Steyn does not cover his eyes and expects the same from the people who still believe in liberty in America, still the last great hope on Earth, but for how long? Combining wit and analysis, Steyn has provided the treatise that is the anti-Left, the anti-Obama. Hopefully America will rediscover its greatness and avoid the fate of empires in history.

After America

Great read! Tells the true story of how and why people in the US are becoming bludgeoned by our own stupidity. The anointed one(Obama) and his worthless cronies are appealing to those who can no longer have the guts to do something to make their lives better. The sheep they have now become are just wandering and waiting for someone else to take care of them. Take for example, inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and those who feel their rights are to $400.00 dollar cell phones and houses they cannot remotely afford. Since when did anyone have those rights? They buy these things with redistributed money and do not stop to think, "maybe I should buy healthcare coverage for my family?" what a crock. It is politicians like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd who should be going to prison for extended lengths of time for what they did to the housing market.
The author is correct, if we do not change the leadership this year we will slide into an abyss this country will not be able to get out of. I read a quote the other day that truly frightens me for my children.

"when the number of people working for a living is outnumbered by those who vote for a living then we are destined for destruction.
