The idea behind this book of showing different statistics the way they are shown was very good. There were a few things that I found very helpful, but I need to add a caveat. I believe many of the statistics are incorrect (another reviewer mentioned this as well). I am glad I read it to get a broad picture of things, but I wouldn't use any of the statistics as fact.

There is much in this book that is relevant and much that is deserving of skepticism.

The introduction was partially inspiring and partially sickening. Particularly, the author's continual use of "inclusiveness," a buzzword describing a phenomenon bordering on idolatry among the followers of a certain, modern political group. He also seemed to buy into such fake or misnamed "problems" like overpopulation, taking in the colossal fallacies of Ehrlich, et alias.

In general, the statistics seems skew
