NOT! This book was full of half-truths, outdated information (even when first published) and scare tactics. He obviously tried to use the uncertainty of y2k for his own financial gain. Do yourself a favor and avoid books by the doom & gloom camp. They'll be back with another catastrophe (e.g. asteroid, aliens, disease, etc.) pushing their books again. Don't bite their bait.
Jan 3, 2000: Well, the author may have made what one reviewer called a "convincing argument," but all that shows is how easily some of us are duped. The author, like much of the press, has tapped into our ignorance and gulliblity, and tried to scare the bejesus out of us. He should be ashamed! The millennium bug was averted not because of scare mongers like this so-called expert, but because the marketplace realized there would be a financial penalty for not fixing things. It's no more complicated than that. So have we learned anything, boys and girls?
