The recovery from this horrific period of economic transition into a new and very different economy of the 21st century will be felt for many more years. In order for Americans to rebuild their shattered dreams, find and create new dignified employment and rebuild their wealth, they will have to reinvent themselves. This means adapting to constant change and learning how to look for opportunities for success even in perilous economic situations. It also means Americans must finally take a stand and advocate for real meaningful change and progress in their political systems, create a new more capable tax code and reduce our debts individually and collectively to meet our abilities to repay them. Creating a sustainable governance model and a new more fair tax code that does not sacrifice our ideals as a nation built on capitalism is essential to our over-all recovery as a nation and as a free people that have a renewed sense of purpose full of economic opportunities for all of us.

    Don Holbrook's 'The Next America' although on a very important and complex subject, is written in such a simple and easy to understand style that even a person with absolutely no economics/politics knowledge would be able to fully comprehend it. It is no doubt that we Americans are currently going through testing times with a whole lot of uncertainty about the near future. Don explains literally every single topic at length that we see in the news lately.

Don explains literally every single topic at length that we see in the news lately. To be honest, I'm really surprised by the fact that a book written in 2014 is unbelievably relatable to our current politico-economic situation. I really enjoyed reading Don's take on the current education system and the suggested reforms. All in all, this is an insanely informative book that I can easily recommend to every single American.

    Livro interessante que procura dar a conhecer várias estratégias que poderiam ser adoptadas no âmbito das estratégias de recuperação económica dos EUA - em alguns casos, penso que seria mesmo possível aplicá-las noutros Estados, ainda que com as devidas adaptações. Claro que em alguns dos capítulos e matérias focadas pelo autor, há um forte apelo ao american way of life, propondo medidas e formas de pensar com as quais não concordo e que, de certa forma, derivam da necessidade dos EUA se sentirem Livro interessante que procura dar a conhecer várias estratégias que poderiam ser adoptadas no âmbito das estratégias de recuperação económica dos EUA - em alguns casos, penso que seria mesmo possível aplicá-las noutros Estados, ainda que com as devidas adaptações. Claro que em alguns dos capítulos e matérias focadas pelo autor, há um forte apelo ao american way of life, propondo medidas e formas de pensar com as quais não concordo e que, de certa forma, derivam da necessidade dos EUA se sentirem sempre em controlo e no topo do mundo. No entanto,penso que tal acaba por ser inevitável, especialmente se tivermos presente o facto de estarmos perante um livro que se destina a propor medidas que visam devolver todo o esplendor e pujança económica aos EUA. 3,5 estrelas.

    This is my latest book on how to get America back on track... growing and creating jobs that will restore and rebuild our own lives, our communities and not sell out our ideals as a great republic in hope of some panacea of being cared for by Big Government... which is inevitably not productive and UnAmerican. The loss of economic creativity, innovation and freedoms directly affects our ability to maintain our own civil liberties and individual freedoms. I hope you like the book!

    First be warned that despite the title this is not as I expected about personal financial advice. On the contrary, the text discusses what is wrong with America and how America can survive. The author explains that the US is currently in trouble for a number of reasons including; dysfunctional politics, a repressive tax code, unhelpful fiscal support systems, absent energy policies and ineffective, mismatched and unavailable educational opportunities.

On the contrary, the text discusses what is wrong with America and how America can survive. The author explains that the US is currently in trouble for a number of reasons including; dysfunctional politics, a repressive tax code, unhelpful fiscal support systems, absent energy policies and ineffective, mismatched and unavailable educational opportunities. He then goes on to provide his personal, sometimes detailed opinion on how to resolve each of these issues. The highlights of his solutions include term limits, lobby reforms, grassroots activism, consumption based tax reform, portable worker benefits, educational vouchers, transaction fee based and incentive reform of the fiscal markets, public/private partnerships and aggressive promotion of alternative energy. Many of the solutions sound as if they formulated while brainstorming at the lunch counter i.e. what if we did this. The proposed personal and corporate tax rates and educational voucher systems (1% here, 4% here, 9% here, etc) seem to have been calculated on the fly without support from actual numerical analyses. The analysis of education and his solutions are fairly simplistic. First he says that our student outcome are very poor despite one of the most expensive systems (K-12) worldwide. He assumes the teachers have failed and the solution is to put in more money and reward teachers whose students do best and allow students to go wherever (vouchers) they choose. This ignores the fact that teachers can't "learn" students especially those without a book or newspaper in the home or any home based educational motivation. This should be evident in the universal success of Asian and Indian students relative to their peers throughout the same public school system. The author is a full out proponent of the oft revised 1970s peak oil hypothesis and suggests we have already past the peak 10 years ago as evidenced by current high oil prices and proposes an exponential rise going forward. There is an inexplicably detailed discussion of public/private partnerships about which the author appears to be more knowledgeable. The book reads like an overly wordy transcript of a series of power point presentations. The author regularly uses ten words when three would suffice. The text is liberally sprinkled with quotes the logic of which often seems obscure. I found the text at times a very difficult if not painful read. I sometimes had to read sections again before realizing they seemed to say little regarding the section heading. As a whole the text provides a large number of important issues about which one might begin a fruitful discussion. As for help with you personal financial, the last few paragraphs suggest almost laughably....if we fail nationally, everyone for themselves.

    I'm not too keen on Don Holbrook's ideas in "The Next America." Some of his ideas are great, like regarding education, but most of his ideas are so far fetch that they will never come true. You can't rebuild America base on theories. There has to be action, reaction, and leadership and Don Holbrook is just talking out of his rear without any examples. I almost couldn't finish this one. At one point, I had to stop and listen to something else because Brian Daniel Young (narrator) speaks in waves. I'm not too keen on Don Holbrook's ideas in "The Next America."

Avoid his voice as much as possible. His vocal folds is poison.

    While Holbrook has some interesting and good ideas, most of his ideas would not pass through congress and he does have a rather populist streak. I did listen to the audio version and found the reader, Brian Daniel Young very difficult to listen to, his rhythm is unsteady, he pauses in awkward moments and has a sing-song pitch, I found it very off-putting. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    For the advancement of our Dear America Don Holbrook produced a well-written book that deserves wide circulation. So inspiring and thought provoking.

This book was written in 2014 but it was as if the author saw the future while writing this book and it was also like Donald Trump is acting based on the content from the pages of this book because what Holbrook outlined in "The Next America" is playing out so well presently in USA. He highlighted what is currently going on in United State with regard to economic, politics and governance with no predisposition. This book is really an eye opener, it made me see clearly that so many things has gone wrong in the system and the need to take action to bring about a turnaround and positive change in the system is paramount. This expected restoration and change starts from me, you, all family units, religious bodies, interest groups and the community.
