Post How would you rate this book - The Limits of Power?
Any last general thoughts or opinions before the book is taken down?

I would say that the book was well written, topical, informative and relevant. It is one of those books that helps you understand the issues facing America better than most other sources. Of course the discussions were great fun to so you are all getting 5(five) votes as well. Congratulations!

I guess I've already said what I thought, but never averse to repeating myself. I like a nonfiction book that is tightly put together, not overly long, always clear as to the author's perspective, and of course well reasoned. This is why I'd give the book a 5. I think there will be some connections between this book and the current nf book, Bad Money. Bachevich's crisis of progligacy seems very relevant to the credit crisis that caused all our current finance problems and which Phillips is educating us about.

I guess only have 2 people vote and myself being one of them is a bad sign in terms of live book discussions.

How are the scheduled chats going? they both happen to be at bad time for me, ah well someday.

Well I guess that only two people read this book, and we both liked it so that must be a good sign.*

*translation - BUMP!!
