Review of America’s Overpopulation Predicament: Blindsiding Future Generations

The book initially focuses on birth rates, then on the compounding consequences of overpopulation, both ecologically and societal. The author presents compelling reasons to change course, and finally, what you can do to help accomplish change
I know the author and have read several of his books. While he often focuses on the joy of adventure, his travels have led to vivid awareness of the looming overpopulation predicament that we face in America, and which virtually every nation faces.

This book is hard-hitting. It contains an amazing amount of research which is presented in short chapters that are readable and digestible, albeit disconcerting. It also contains numerous references to other books and websites, along with incisive quotes from scientists, environmentalists, and activists. For these reasons alone, the book is worth purchasing as a solid reference.

As the author notes, there is repetition in parts of the book. For example, several chapters reference the same material and videos. But that is not necessarily a bad thing, as the casual reader can read any of the short chapters out of sequence. The writing style is casual, but aptly conveys the serious of America's population problem.

Mass immigration is driving America's population to double within the lifetimes of children born today. Yet as the author notes, we're blindsiding future generations, thanks to the myopic population policies of Congress and self-serving politicians.

I recommend this book.

Note on Kindle version: in a few small sections, font size was different from the rest of the book. This did not effect readability. Also, the Kindle version is incredibly cheap.
