Collector's Item Dec 2, 2000
After the big Y2K threat became a "non-event" I almost threw this book on the trash heap. Then I realized that it could well be a collector's item one day. There is some sound advice for dealing with natural disasters, planning for record storage,and general common sense practices that are still worth taking a look at now that we are not in a panic mode. Can you imagine if you found a book in your attic entitled "How to Survive the Coming Great Depression" that had belonged to your great grandparents? It would be priceless. This is going into my attic for my grandchildren to dig out someday.
...and for Hyatt's next book, Meteors! Apr 2, 2000
Hysteria and a dose of air time on CSPAN has made Mr. Hyatt the prophet of doom for the great un-happening of the millenium! Imagine all those people hunkered down on New Year's Eve expecting planes to drop out of the sky and ATMs to die, and you have the makings of a great parody. Hyatt's next big project is going to have intergalatic consequences to match the sales rate of this book. The scenarios greatly underestimated the strength of the global infrastructure and painted an alarmist view. I only hope Mike Hyatt stays true to his chapters on Christianity and tithes the loyalties from this alarmist book so the truly deplorable aspects of U.S. society such as undernourished children and the low education level in the "have not" states is at least impacted by this book. In the end if Mr. Hyatt really wants to make a difference in the U.S. write on the digital divide and use CSPAN time to change the priorities for the 3rd world poverty pockets we have here in the U.S.
move it to humor section! Jan 8, 2000
This book is absolutely hilarious! I don't know whether Hyatt really intended to write a parody, but nonetheless he succeeded brilliantly in doing so.
Well researched and clarified explaination. Jul 12, 1999
Mr. Hyatt provides great insight into his view of the Y2K crisis. Being involved and talking to people in the tech field I feel that the crisis is not as dramatic as it is being brought out. Mr. Hyatt put in great effort in research and correspondence before putting his thoughts and opinions into print. I feel that it is important to keep hard copy documentation on contracts and statements which is stated in his book but I do feel like he is going to extremes in stating that we need to learn survivalist techniques. Also how could we possibly learn and buy everything we need to survive the crisis in span of a few short months. Anyway the book is very interesting even though I think it is a little dramatic.
A "must have" for those who want ideas about how to prepare. Jun 20, 1999
One of the best books I've seen for those who want to do something to get ready. Whether you're already convinced and looking for direction, or still considering the issue and want to know more about what you might want to do, this book will help you make the necessary decisions. No one knows for sure what will happen come Jan 1 2000. But just like no one knows they will have a car accident in the next month, they still buy insurance, just in case. Think of taking the steps outlined in this book as your "lifestyle insurance", just in case there are problems. If you're looking for suggestions about how to make sure you aren't caught unprepared IF problems occur because of Y2K, this is the book for you. If you go about it the right way, many of your "preparations" will not be wasted, even if Y2K is only the bump in the road that many suggest. You can do much of what Mr. Hyatt is suggesting for less than what you are probably paying for your annual auto insurance. If you are still undecided doing something, read the book and realize it's not as tough as you thought to make at least some minimum preparations. If you don't know where to get started or what things to consider, this book is an excellent beginning place. If you're already convinced, this book helps you organize the steps you take. One final thought. With only a little over 6 months to go, and having been hearing about this issue for at least 2 years now, ask yourself honestly "at this late date, how much of the technology that I rely on is considered '100% ready to go', how much is 'still being worked on', and what kind of faith do I have that it will be finished in time?". Following Mr. Hyatt's suggestions will return some of the control over this issue to you - putting you in a better position if there are problems. Send a copy to those you care about - they'll appreciate it too. Don't delay!
