Nobody mongers doom like Mark Steyn.
Douglas Murray, Standpoint (United Kingdom)
Even as the author brings us bundles of bad news, heís polite enough to do so with panache, with prose that is succinct, lucid and entertainingÖ Because his good humor and good will permeate, he can be read and enjoyed by readers of all political stripes.
Ray Hartwell, The Washington Times
Making fun of something without making light of it requires humorís equivalent of the perfect pitch... All Steyn asks is that you sit back and relax while he shows you why youíre going to hell in a hand-basket and how youíre going to get there. He means it, too, and you know that he does, but youíre still having fun on the way.
George Jonas, The National Post (Canada)
May puke I'm so happy: Just got in mail Mark Steyn's new book
Itís bigger, stronger, scarier, and funnier. If America Alone was Steynís Star Wars, this is the rare sequel that improves on the original: The Empire Strikes Out.
John Hayward (Human Events)
Steyn's 2011 must-read was a Top Five Washington Post bestseller, a Top Four New York Times bestseller, a Top Four Amazon bestseller, a Top Three Globe & Mail bestseller in Canada, and a Number One bestseller at Amazon Canada. And now it's out in paperback, with a brand new introduction and more timely than ever in the wake of the US elections.
In his previous bestseller America Alone, Steyn warned of the impending collapse of just about every country in the western world except America. The good news is the rest of the westís demise is still on schedule. The bad news is America has now signed up for the same program, supersized. And, unlike Solyndra, Fannie Mae, Detroit and Greece, the United States is big enough to fail, and spectacularly so. If, like Mark, you want to avoid that fate, then After America is the book for you. It starts with the money, because it always does - for Washington, as for London and Rome before it. But it ends with a ruined and reprimitivized planet.
If you enjoyed Mark's last apocalyptic blockbuster, you'll love this one. From budgets to the border, diversity to disease, manufacturing to manhood, Steyn looks at the American undreaming, and provides a glimpse of the post-American world.
The editor of The Claremont Review Of Books described America Alone as "the most fun I've had being depressed". After America is even more depressing, and even more fun!
