The book is short, in actuality it is a collection of essays from his past. I read the fifth edition and found it funny how he showed shock at gold prices being at $200.00 an ounce. As of the writing of this review, the price of gold is more around $2,000.00 an ounce. I find it interesting how people are so out of touch and uninformed of how are monetary system works.
I truly believe in the immortal words of Henry Ford when he said,
"If people understood the banking system they would revolt."
This is a great book if you are interested in understanding the banking and monetary system. If you are interested in seeing how our present day politicians play us for fools, you need to read this book.
