it was amazing
Read from April 17 to June 11, 2012

This is a very important book.

It makes a very good companion to Peter Diamandis's Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think

Where Abundance examines the incredible progress of humanity and shows us we can expect even greater things in the future, Merchants of Despair shows us the dark side of our past when we have let ourselves be led astray by doomsayers such a Malthus, Ehlrich and Holdren.

Zubrin chronicles the suffering imposed on humanity by the Malthusians and convincingly argues the falsehood of the Malthusian viewpoint, these arguments and backed by meticulous research & a plethora references.

Highly recommended.
