Interesting Yet Myopic. This is one of those books that has a lot of interesting points and is presented well, with a decent amount of humor even… and yet is also *incredibly* myopic at best, and could readily even be classified as elitist and condescending, possibly even racist. As someone who was actively running for small town rural City Council around the time this book was originally being written a decade ago, there are a lot of good points here – but there are also even more points that I could have quite easily shot down with barely any effort at all. Such is the level of the holes in Speck’s “reasoning”, such as it is. Read this book. But study the *entirety* of the implications of Speck’s suggestions. Recomended.
