If paying $4.00 a gallon at the pump in the summer of 2008 didn't scare you enough, here comes a description of the end of life as we know it. Each chapter is titled after a dollar amount (beginning with $4.00), followed by a discussion of how that price would affect the United States. It isn't pretty, but the author says that it's necessary for our survival as a nation. To his great credit, narrator John Wolfe does not take the bait and attempt to scare us. Instead, he uses his gravelly, assured voice to interpret the hopeful side of the book's message. Wolfe reads with authority and precision while slyly laughing at outlandish ideas, such as the return of $1.00 a gallon gas. He is engaging throughout.
