This book is entrepreneur and musician Robin Crow’s cry for action from the American people. He warns that “overpopulation, diminishing natural resources,” increasing energy needs and “environmental damage” threaten the American way of life and of business. He cautions that the disaster train is chugging around the bend while Americans are playing on the tracks. Acknowledgement of and adaption to tomorrow’s harsh realities is the only way to survive and succeed. Unfortunately, Crow doesn’t duplicate his passion for the issues by offering an in-depth, germane plan of action. His “seven-step challenge” is a bit broad for practical application, although he uses sound examples and shares engaging personal stories. getAbstract recommends putting down your bottled water, turning off the latest reality show and reading this much needed wake-up call. His outline gives you a starting point. You’ll figure out what to do.
In this summary, you will learn
- What issues form the “perfect storm” that is threatening US society,
- Why American businesses must respond to these challenges and
- What seven steps you can take to answer today’s challenges, adapt and succeed.
