Mr. Donovan is a former Navy nuclear electrician who has made a living since doing everything from bagging groceries to trading stocks, futures, and currencies, whereby he gained much of his knowledge of economics and finance, to working as a BPI building analyst. He is the founder of the Worker-Capitalist Society(WCS), which works to teach people of all income levels and backgrounds the basic principles of economic self-sufficiency and risk management. He currently divides his time betweeen hs work in IT/energy consulting, his WCS activities, his Forex trading, writing, and trying not to hurt himself too badly at parkour, his chosen form of exercise to stay in shape.

The author is up front about his biases. He describes himself as a “straight up capitalist”. He identifies as a Reagan Republican with belief in economic self sufficiency, faith in the individual and individual freedoms. He does not identify with any current political party and says he is “an extreme nonpartisan” : “I focus on solutions …”
He was raised a Catholic but no longer practices. “Try not to kill…only kill as a last resort…”
His life experiences are substantial: ex-Navy nuclear electrician; he made some bad financial decisions and hence was homeless for four years; he taught Linux at an adult school near San Diego, CA until the class was cancelled.
The author currently runs a consulting business and has a web site: http://tradecraftsolutions.com
The author is correct: the book focuses on solutions to our country's big problems.
I'd love to overhear an imaginary conversation between the author and Paul Ryan discussing the U.S. budget.
It is refreshing when an author clearly states his biases and why he wrote his book (time on his hands as the class he teaches was cancelled). For his honest, up front aproach to serious problems that need solutions -- I rate this book four stars.
