"[An] excellent and thoughtful book....Gosselin...does a fine job of connecting the stories he tells to general ideas and to economy-wide statistical markers, some developed for his particular purpose. He has produced a readable and valuable book."
"Though his treatment of numbers is rigorous and lucid, Gosselin adds more value with his hair-raising stories of arbitrary job loss and evaporating retirement funds."
