Oh wow, I"m reading this book far too late. Most of what is predicted already came to pass. Interesting way of looking at demographics. I will need to read the next one in the series to see if the author is able to maintain such consistent predictions.

Although I think this was an interesting book to read, I don't believe demographics can explain as much as claimed by David. Humans are just too complicated creatures.
