Speaking of "All the Trouble in the World", for a look at why none of the fashionable world crises of the 20th century should worry you, take a peek at the P.J. O'Rourke best seller of the same name.
This book has been a favorite of mine since its publication in 1995. Mr. O'Rourke's views on overpopulation, famine, ecological disaster, ethnic hatred, plague, and poverty are as relevant today as they were a decade ago.
Also, he makes me laugh.
