I've just started this and I don't know if I can go any further, I am all for optimism but this guy seems to be living in a different world than I am. At the beginning of the book he talks about how many middle class families can afford one, if not two, boats!?!? He says that older people no longer have to worry about being taken care of when they are older, sure they can get S.Security but go to a nursing home where they stick the poor people, I would rather be dead. His views on the environment seem odd so far. I am giving it one more chapter to toss some reality in.
