They planned the downfall of economies worldwide with a designer pneumonia. They got the Cartoon News Network and derivatives wrapped around their finger to do their bidding... and now they are appointing themselves as our global Gods. Ha!

Lies, lies, lies, lies. Why do we keep falling for these historical power grab schemes? It's not like we can afford to keep learning from the same mistake because technology, surveillance and bio terrorism is advancing exponentially. Eventually it won't matter

Klaus Schwab is a very sick puppy. "The Great Reset" the insane idea, has been around since 2016, but they have been trying to find a lever for it all much longer. It was first coined as "The New World Order". That didn't catch so well in the masses. Nither did "The Great Reset" until Covid, when they ADDED Covid to their book titile, and ADDED covid to The Great Reset. PLEASE don't believe this madman, just because the elietes, like Bill Gates and BONO are buddy buddy with the WEF, doesn't mean ...more

Having read this book I can honestly say that I think he is confusing Dystopia and Utopia.

All he keeps going on about is doing practically everything at home, i.e:

Why go shopping when you can shop online and have it delivered to your home.
Why go to the theatre, concert or cinema when you can stream all your entertainment at home.
Why go to a restaurant when you can order a take away to be delivered to your home.
Why go to social gatherings with family and friends when you can all meet up on WhatsA

Criminal plan for our enslavement masquerading as a positive reset.
A Techno-Totalitarian Lovestory

I bought this book to gain some knowledge about the mindset of globalists, who are the selfproclaimed "elite" of this world, while nobody has ever voted for them to govern our lives. This book is good evidence that these people are living in a bubble, having lost all connection to reality. I will now summarize the main problems I have figured out about the author's perception of reality depicted in this book:

Wow... the comments.... have you all been beaten with a stupid stick? Do you really think that they just planned this all up in such a brief period as a result of the virus? Grow up. This existed years before Covid-19, and they were just waiting for the excuse.

Please watch this video if you want to know what this book is really about:

It's an elitist, European university schooled dreamworld of dystopia. Everything is there:

- A snobbist view on 'ordinary people' who are racist, nationalist and populist.
- 'They' know it better: the economy, how to distribute wealth and resources: for your own good.
- A view on the E.U. as it is: an elitist lobbying people hating institute.

All this is pimped with quotes from every notable European enlightenment thinker, to make your insane statement more credible.

This is a terrible book! We are not in a pandemic. We will not accept the great reset of the wicked globalists trying to destroy our world! Read agenda 2030 to find out what they want to do to us. Do not take the vaccine! These people want to rule the world!

Great book summarizing the impact of the pandemic to date and giving high level overviews of where it might take us yet. It presents the hypothesis that Covid-19 has provided catalyst/shock that creates a unique opportunity to begin the 'great reset' needed to enact this positive, sustainable and lasting change. Enlightened leaders and society at large should try and use this opportunity to address the four existential risks that we collectively face:
1) nuclear threats;
2) climate change;

So I wanted to read this as I expected it to be an instructive manual for what's coming on for us in the near future.
Klaus Swabb is the chairman of World Economic Forum, i.e. the billionaire's book club. I effin' hate globalists, and this boring, yet ominous book has confirmed all of my suspicions.
As I said, mostly it's a very boring book, but often there are passages full of their creepy ideas for the future. The book is full of those creepy quotes. On the first, introductory, page, here's one

Ok, it isn’t a “conspiracy theory” when they’re openly telling you what they want to do.

Nothing new here, all those ideas are stolen from social scientists and transhumanists (without mentioning the sources!!). Klaus Schwab just slightly reshaped their ideas for next discussion at next WEF, by using their slang ("sustainability", "4th technological revolution", "goals2030" etc.) Don't waste your time for this book, just read some reviews (here are some really good ones) to know what's on Their a

“COVID-19: The Great Reset” is an exceptional work of incisive analysis and brilliant prognosis of all things related to human life and progress – the right book at the right time. It provides a welcome respite from an avalanche of conflicting news and commentaries, as it deftly separates facts from fiction, with a great sense of balance and equability. With apt references to history, the authors project with realism the possible future scenarios across the entire spectrum of geo-economics, geo- ...more
This is a very well (cleverly) written book.
And if I was a little less cynical (informed) I might actually think that both authors want 'what's best for us'.

But if you think about it : why would 2 economical hotshots (with heaps of money and power) promote a not-for-profit society ? Why would they want a redistribution of wealth, 'so everyone in that new society has the same amount of money' ? I somehow get the feeling that they do not include themselves (1%) when they talk about 'society' ...

Not sure if I am so conspiratorial as to believe that Klaus and his cabal of internationalist banker types planned the release of the virus, but certainly he is using a virus-weakened condition of the world to launch an economy planned by him and his family members, such as Soros and the like. These plans have always been known by the name "Marxism" but now we are calling it "The Great Reset" and "Build Back Better." It's like when the "Marxist Party" became known as the "Green Party", it was me ...more

Shelves: politics
The conspiracy theorists catfished me here - I read this book in the expectation of it being the manifesto of the New World Order. Some of things outside of the reviews that were in favour of that:

-Ominous title
-Mainly authored by a wealthy academic who heads an influential NGO
-Said academic has a photo were he genuinely looks like a super villain[1]

However this is not the book which argues for a world where we all are forced to work from home, where UN officials will forcibly vaccinate us, wh

2 Stars. Why? Because there is SOME useful information, based on the fact that after all Schwab is one of the people who are pushing so hard the new agenda, which is hidden behind soft words like "green", "equality", "justice" and so on, but what the reader should know is that the purpose of the reset is not that. In fact the main idea is more surveillance, more dictatorship, of course...just like the authors said justified from the pandemic and the future pandemics that will come.

Problem, reaction, solution.

Coivd-19 seems like a perfect opportunity for Blitzkrieg digitalisation of the world.

At least the book acknowledges that COVID 19 poses a real danger for very old (over 80) or very sick people.

The benefits like working remote, less need for cars or comute might just be worth it for some of us.

2.5 stars. It's an odd book.
The title implies that it contains extreme plans to overhaul society. Schwab begins by theorizing that the Black Death may have been responsible for the Enlightenment, and that WW2 changed our economic structure by normalizing women in the workplace.
Most of the book doesnt talk about how this paradigm shift will, or ought to, come about though. Most of it reads like a typical boring poli sci essay on COVID. Like, what it talks about is important, but its stuff we've
Interesting sell on their push

Read this to learn more about why and how the World Economic Forum is so involved in what is currently taking place in our environment. Interesting sell but the resulting dystopian future is quite grim.
Costin Nitsoc
More and more people become familiar with terms such as "build back better", SDGs, stakeholder capitalism and "the great reset". Unfortunately, just a few can understand what it is. The rest prefer the easy way: label it as a "conspiracy theory" and move forward (or go back to Netflix if they are currently in lockdown).

The Great Reset is REAL and is the mastermind of it is Mr. Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum. "what's that?" you might ask, well, for sure you didn't vote for it.
Emil O. W. Kirkegaard
Veeeery boring. I do not recommend. Very vague, full of socialist stuff. Best thing to say about it, is that it is short.
Helene Black
After doing some research and reading content on the WEF website, I've now understood where Schwab expects his resources to come from. If you're not familiar with the phrase "You'll own nothing, but you'll be happy", I suggest you do some research yourself.

I'm not changing my review to 1 star. The book has some good points -- we need to make changes to our lifestyle. Not just the middle class, everybody. Rich, poor, absolutely everybody (yes, even the Queen). We need to change how we approch our

I honestly cant see why so many people are outraged by this book. First off, it's pretty obvious that this is analysis of current trends and not a manifesto as some "readers" are claiming in the reviews. All of the accusations of fascism are mind boggling. The guy's obviously a bit of a left wing technocrat with far too much optimism that capitalism is capable of reigning in its excesses. He raises some interesting points in regards to a possible shift from globalisation to regionalisation and a ...more

The writers connect George Floyd death and BLM riots with COVID 19 to suggest we need a "great reset". What is the great reset, you ask? The "new normal" AKA dystopian hell will consist of global control with constant serveillance. They applaud the lockdowns for saving lives but overlook any mention of massive increase in suicides. Lockdowns causing starvation due to supply line problems? These are acceptable losses for "the greater good." The writers actually quote Bill Gates and Henry Kissinge ...more

It's a very thought-provoking book that encouraged me to re-examine my life, my idea about capitalism and my connection to the larger community and my environment. It challenged me to think about what led to the current situation, encouraged me to be even more responsible about our collective future and be proactive about changing our world for the better. In the end, the book helped me to see the light in the darkness and to make use of the pandemic to explore and discover for myself a new futu ...more

Typical view of how we can reshape the world from one of the Davos elite. Untouched by and changes society has truly felt or any they propose in this book. A prime example is their proposal we should all vacation closer to home so as to limit carbon emissions from air travel.. this coming from the men who fly private jets from Davos to NYC to Beijing planning a societal utopia they will view from the comfort and safety of their gated estates.
