Giant Sales Pitch - SOME Accurate Info

This book does bring some interesting perspectives and is certainly correct about some aspects of the financial system, however, some parts are blatantly false with no data to back up major claims. This book is very emotionally driven and certain parts are meant to scare the reader into making “the right” decisions. It is clear what the authors true motivation is for writing this book.. to make more money. The book acts as an educational tool which should le

Great introduction into the history of money and the returning financial crisis that hits our economy every generation. I expacted however more information about the post financial crisis and how gold and silver weathered that. The writer, who is now also a dealer, advertises himself just a bit too often. Still very interested to explore his website and take my chances on investing in precious metals.

This book tries to convince its readers that precious metals such as gold and silver are true money, whereas all the "money" that we to call today, be it dollar, pound, yen or whatever, which are printed and backed by governments are actually currencies. Money and currency are very similar in that both are portable, durable, divisible and fungible (interchangeable), but money is different from currency for the reason that it's a store of value over a long period of time, but currency isn't.

Overall a good read with a historical perspective on gold and silver, and how they relate to the economy. I recommend it if you have an interest in PM investing but have no knowledge regarding the subject. A good starting point.

This book is a must try. It depends on you wether you want to implement or deny the facts. I wont say all facts or statement he puts are 100% true but at the same time i cannot deny the fact of his research and how advance he is in his field. Obviously, he has tried to advertise his business, its upto us whether to visit or not. What has changed after reading this? Well, first of all, my perspective towards money and currency has completely changed. This book could be my base point, from where i ...more

Every year you hear more and more about this financial crisis or that one. Occasionally there are economic collapses like what happened in greece. We aren't immune here in the United States. Hopefully a dollar collapse won't happen during our lifetimes. If it does owning physical gold and silver ounces and kilos is an insurance policy. ...more

A very good book about the history of money and the troubled financial And banking system. It offers a strong argument to support why rare commodities should be part of our assets management. The book is actually a free-download from the author’s website hence making all his information & data more genuine and trustworthy.

This Book is pretty fascinating. I came across this book after watching his series 'Hidden Secrets of Money', and wow do you learn history. I loved the way he explained the importance of holding Gold and Silver and how history played out for people holding these precious metals. This book gives a good guidance of how to hold Gold and Silver and why you should. A great book to read. ...more

I rated this book 4 stars in terms of how simply yet effectively he explained the basic economics principle and history of wealth around the world in this book.
If only he had been my economics professors, university years could have been easier I guess.

We are in big economic trouble, as this book argues. This is also a guide on how to protect oneself from the unprecedented economic storm rolling inexorably toward us. This book is fascinating if you have an interest in economics, wealth-cycles and economic history.
