i just picked up today the long emergency by James Howard Kunstler. i asked about it at the bookstore and they had to go check the back. and apparently, they just received 10 minutes prior. awesome.
it seems like it's similarish to power down, by richard heinberg. these days i can't think about much else besides the impending crash(es).
for a preview of it, see the article he wrote for rolling stone magazine based on the book.
