    This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else. So begins Fareed Zakaria s blockbusting bestseller on the United States in the twenty-first century. How can Americans understand this rapidly changing international climate, and how might the nation continue to thrive in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination."

Slim volumn, but dense and informative

by Rubycanary on Jan 6, 2009

I heard about this book from the John Stewart show. Actually that is one of my favorite things about his show is that it is few of the main stream programs left that have book reviews and authors as regular guests. I'm half way though, and really enjoying this book. Although the title my sound a little doomsday-ish, really Zakaria's point is that there was a creative, growing, important world before America, and there will be one after America is no longer the front runner. America is no longer the top of the game in most arenas, several Asian countries and India are leading us in population, advances in new technology, size of skyscrapers, and buying power. His view point is not negative, but I think he is calling for Americans to wake up, really take a look at world history (from more perspectives then just our limited, mostly white view), and realize that we are going to have to become better global citizens rather than seeing ourselves as entitled consumers.
