I never finished reading this book. it was too wordy and they seemed to ramble all over where they could have made their point clearly in a lot fewer words. Also, their thesis, while interesting and probably valid, didn't seem to hold my interest. That we are entering a period of crisis is obvious to anyone paying any attention but I never got to their prediction of the next crisis as I totally lost interest in anything more they had to say just over 200 pages in. Congrats to anyone who finished the book and followed them all the way through. That this became a best seller amazes me and that it is one of if not Steve Bannon's favourite but they are the only reason I picked the book up. I wanted to see what Steve's mind was like but no longer care. There are better reads I would rather spend my time on.

Interesting and probably valid theory on war cycles, but it could have been explained in half the length.
