"Andrew Welch is a multi-talented man.  A graduate of math and computer sciences from the University of Waterloo in 1984, he went on to do many things.  For the last few years, his focus has been on his career as an author.  While his first book, The Value Crisis, is not a fiction it has received the kind of attention mainly given to fiction."  Read article
bullet The Value Crisis - 2nd Edition is now released!

The first edition of "The Value Crisis" has sold out, just in time for the release of its sequel.  On the assumption that "Our Second Chance" will undoubtedly renew interest in the original work, we decided to put out an enhanced 2nd Edition of "The Value Crisis".  The new version has a new introduction and a very small number of internal corrections.  It also has an Index of topics and quotations, making it easier to quickly find your favourite passages and pithy quotes.  All future sales, including those done online through Amazon, will be the 2nd Edition.

bullet Stellar review for The Value Crisis from well-respected journal!, Alternatives Journal, 09 July, 2015
