I don't think people realize how fragile freedom really is. President Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." He understood what few do. Each generation has their time that they must stand up to defend freedom. Our time is now.
The Miracle of Freedom: Seven Tipping Points That Saved the World highlights 7 points in history that freedom, the idea of freedom, or creation of freedom was on the verge of total destruction. The authors realize that there are many more "tipping points" in history, but it would be impractical to describe them all. They have chosen 7 they think are most important.
The mix of historical fiction and history fact, easily discernable, make this history book a very easy read. Following the stories of individual characters make these events personal, and help the reader gain personal insight.
When you finish this book, you will walk away with a new found appreciation for freedom. Freedom is not the rule, it is the exception. A very small number of the people that have lived on this earth have lived what we would call "free" lives. If we are not careful, this experiment called freedom, may end as just a blip of history.
This is a must read for a Financial Survivalist. Studying history helps us understand our current world and where we may be headed. I give it a 9/10.
