Review: The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel

User Review  - Savio - Goodreads

The author had a very negative outlook and was always comparing the present to the 1970's I know history repeats itself, but never word to word my friend. And the investment advice given was not something new..so In all not worth reading. Read full review

Review: The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel

User Review  - DR Pitcock - Goodreads

I enjoyed the apocalyptic "what ifs" in the book. It sets your mind thinking about what would happen if I had to pay $15.00 a gallon for gas and under what circumstances. It isn't very prescient but is a good, measured approach to a chaotic world were it's a bit like a Mad Max movie. Read full review
