We are officially two months away from the release of my forthcoming fourth book The End of the World Is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Civilization. This book has been a long time coming. More than just a look at what’s coming up next in the world, it is a summation of more than a decade of my career.
For those of you who have read my previous books (more info here, here and here) – and I am eternally grateful for those of you who have! – they were all about the rise and fall of nations and the challenges facing different parts of the world. The upcoming work, The End of the World, steps back and looks at the challenges facing entire global systems.
The future of Agriculture. Energy. Manufacturing. Transport. Industrial materials. They’re all in there, and more. We cover the collapse of what has been a relatively short and prosperous aberration in human history, and what comes next.
The book will be released June 14 but you can order it now, from your favorite bookseller and in your preferred format: print, ebook, audiobook. I’m asking that those of you who are looking to purchase a physical copy of the book to do so through your favorite local bookseller. Unsure of your options? IndieBound is a service that will help connect you to local booksellers in your area, and you can even arrange shipping to your door. Simple as that.
In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing maps and graphs and excerpts from the book to give y’all an idea of what we’ve been working on, and hopefully you’ll join me in my excitement.
And for those of you who have been asking about signed copies, they will be available for order after the release date in June. We’ll be sure to update y’all on all the details as we get closer to that date.
