Peter does a great job explaining how demographics and geography are shaping the end of the US led global peace and prosperity. His predictions are scary, but he's been right way too many times to ignore. This book can stand by its own with easily understandable reviews of the main points of his previous three books, and a detailed overview of how the the changing world order will challenge us all. I really enjoyed Peter's narration of the book.
Peter Zeihan's book, "The End of the World is Just the Beginning" is a brilliant observation of world affairs and a truly outstanding explanation of them.
Having the author narrate the book was just as important as the content. Peter has an incredible way of adding enough emotion and feeling and humor to make what might otherwise be described as dry and boring become fun to listen to. His pronunciation and enunciation made complex sentences and ideas easy to hear as well as fascinating to comprehend.
If this audiobook was an opera, I would shout...BRAVO.

“It’s difficult to make predictions, especially about the future”. Mark Twain.
The book is extremely interesting, informative and based on a very broad knowledge base.
However, it seems to me the author went a bit too far with his prediction of what is going to happen to a super complex system upon a very large number of interruptions.
What also caught my eye is that much of the book leads to the same conclusion, no matter which angle things are inspected from, which can be summarized: “USA good. China bad.” Or even: “USA good. Not USA bad.”
When all things lead to the same conclusion it makes me suspect that this is not a mere scientific endeavor, but also an ideologically driven one as well. I am not saying this is what it is, just that it smells like it.
Last, I heard Zeihan speak over-confidently about vax side effects being fake Russian and Chinese propaganda. As I know first and second hand of such cases and heard world-class scientists in relevant fields discuss them, it makes me wander about some other things he is super confident about.
Read all Zeihan’s books. In order. It’s happening right now. Be informed!
loved it! Am starting it over again. there is so much content that it can't be absorbed in just one bite.
Peter's narration makes a dense topic come alive.
Throughly informative and enjoyable. thank you Peter.
If you enjoy Peter Zeihan you will love the book.
