Book Review---World Made By Hand

I want everyone---EVERYONE---that means YOU---to read this book: "World Made By Hand" by James Howard Kunstler. You absolutely will not be disappointed, even if you couldn't care less about global warming or oil or America's future. You care about you---so you'll want to read this. All of you. Even the non-readers. Really. Don't think of reasons why not. Just buy the book and read it!

It is a novel---a fascinating, exciting, fun book! Here's what I wrote about it on Amazon:

"This book is a great read, an unusual type of science fiction, or better called "speculative fiction" about what our future might hold for us here in the United States.

Even though it takes place in a particular small town in New York, you can imagine vividly what would happen in your town as you read it.

I made this video immediately after finishing this novel. I started it last night and finished it this morning, unable to put it down.

My video is a rave about the book, which everyone certainly will like, even if you are unaware of or uninterested in the important questions it raises. By the end of the book you will have a different perspective, I promise."

If this intrigues you, see my 3:32 review here:

Thank you, aberdare blog! My husband is starting to read it tonight.

Kunstler is a great storyteller---I agree. Wow, the impact of that book just will not leave me.

Can't wait to discuss it with someone!
