Cendrine Marrouat: How has “Recessions End” been received so far? Have you noticed differences between American and Canadian readers?
Michael Everett: It has been the exact opposite of what I expected! I figured that the book would virtually fly off the shelves because I’m one of the only authors that isn’t looking for who to blame or predicting that it will get worse. I’m actually reminding people that down times are the perfect time to take a step back and reinvent oneself. I imagined that after five years of negative media bombardment that people would be thirsty for a little practical thought mixed with good news. Conversely, I was braced for a bashing from critics because I make some bold and contradictory predictions about the future of the economy that could easily be interpreted as overly optimistic.
