Look around you and think for a minute: Is America too crowded?For years, we have been warned about the looming danger of overpopulation: people jostling for space on a planet that's busting at the seams and running out of oil and food and land and everything else. It's all bunk. The "population bomb" never exploded. Instead, statistics from around the world make clear that since the 1970s, we've been facing exactly the opposite problem: people are having too few babies. Population growth has been slowing for two generations. The world's population will peak, and then begin.

I know little of demographics and never would have borrowed this book except at the recommendation of a colleague. The book is well written, with understandable explanations of the data presented. I noticed a rather unfavorable comment about the book which really misses the mark. The book challenges the reader to think and evaluate the goofy world of today and theorizes how we got here. It is unfortunate to draw judgments about the author's motivation.
