In my home town of fremont, Ohio, on the same block as my parent house my parents owned for 69 years, a number of mansions were built in the Roaring Twenties When I was growing up after WW2, they had been split up into apartments, occupied by several of my grade school teachers and the pricinple.

I like Gary Shilling but this book didn't cut it for me. If he spent a little less time reviewing all his past successful forecasts the book would be half the size. He has made some good calls but most of them were 20 years ago so it did leave me somewhat wary. I can't help but feel his current commentary is locked in to his forecast seeking validation rather being truly observant of current realities. Overall just too much self congratulation in this one.

It's not bragging if you actually did it. He does spend a lot of time on his record and past calls but that's understandable as he is almost always the voice alone in the wilderness. And he has almost always been proven right.

He has the courage to make calls and own the results. One of the most accurate forecasters of the last 30+ years.

A bit tedious to read, but he really knows his stuff, and he has a good track record.

Some interesting content once you get past the arrogant first person writing style.
