However, if you would rather not buy the book yet are interested in what Dr. Hirsch has to say, have a listen to this 50 minute interview.*** Dr. Hirsch is no Chicken Little, but he clearly sees major change coming and soon. He is a gracious interviewee, especially when responding to members of the tinfoil hat crowd who show up. You'll recognize them the minute they open their mouths. An interview worth listening to.
*** I recommend you use Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player to listen. I tried it in Chrome, and the file hung up halfway through and would not restart or carry on. I don't know what the media player was, I assume it was on the site itself or something Chrome was using.
