I've read other books about the topic but none as well written and thought out as this one. Very impressive.
No doubt the author has done her homework and done it well.
I'm going to recommend this book to our friends.
Needless to say, everyone can make up their own mind about the question presented by the author... as for me... we will be around a long time... hopefully, growing smarter and more compassionate as a species.
Thanks for an outstanding read!!

A Very Good Book!
I am impressed with the level of research that went into this book. I found the various theories presented very interesting, as were the facts, both for and against either a catastrophe or enlightenment. The survival portion of the book was very well done, and covered a wide area of topics. Having survived in the wild myself, on more than one occasion, I found myself nodding along with the text. Will humanity, or at least some part of it be around after December 21, 2011? I say yes. But then again… only time will tell!
