Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

We are all using dangerous, outdated, old economic strategies to protect and grow our money in the so-called `new economy.' Most of us don't even know it. Every economy is, in some sense, `new.' However, applying the rules from an `older' economy to a `newer' one during times of transition is a recipe for financial ruin.

Economic transitions have been around for centuries . . . the difference is that now they are worldwide in scope and affect everything rather than local in nature with limited affects.

While you sleep at night, while you go to work each day, something insidious is actually stealing your financial future. It isn't anyone's fault really. There is a massive reallocation of wealth as we transition into the new economy.

There are two sides to this story. Because of the changing rules of money, the greatest transfer of wealth in the nation and the world is now unfolding. Money is about to flow away from the financially uninformed and flow towards the financially well-informed in the years ahead.

This is nothing new, really. Money has always worked this way. The good news is that average members of the public now have more ways than ever before to understand this process and to take appropriate action.

I am sure you are aware of the rising price of gold that's been going on for almost 10 years now. Most recently, gold started climbing with even greater speed. History repeats itself again and again. Whenever governments start to dilute their money investors transfer their money into gold. Gold has intrinsic value and will always prevail in any economy.

What most non-investors and investors - including yourself - probably you don't realize is that although gold is a great way to preserve your wealth, it's silver that could actually make you rich!

The price of gold has already risen dramatically, but silver is just beginning its climb.

Nine Reasons Why Silver is a Unique Wealth Building Instrument

- Silver, like gold, has intrinsic value - Silver has been in a commodity bull cycle since 2000 - Silver is a safe hedge against currency inflation - Silver is a security choice during times of financial crisis - Silver is rarer than gold - Silver is used in 90% of all electronics - and its mostly non-renewable - Silver inventories are very low - Silver leasing - the scam will be exposed soon - Silver investment markets are expanding thanks to the Chinese

What You Will Learn From Building Wealth with Silver

You will discover why the Federal Reserve was created and why you and I have been kept in the dark about its true purpose. You will find out why the U.S. dollar is quietly being destroyed without fanfare and the reason this process is being publically denied and covered up. You will see why unemployment numbers, along with many other economic figures, are rigged, and how we're are being lied to about their true significance.

The insights you get from the first few chapters alone can change your life. Even if you were to study at Harvard for five years - which would cost you, by the way, over $95,000 - you would not have the knowledge you need to get any closer to this kind of insider information.

Learn why silver is the best investment opportunity right now.

Get the facts on silver production and consumption, and all the details behind silver's projected five- to eight-fold increase over the next several months.

Most of the information contained in this book is very obvious.
Brian Monaghan
Overall, I would recommend the book as a primer on investing in Silver, although I would also highly recommend doing some further research as well.
Amazon Customer
Ask yourself why someone would write a 5-star review that reads more like slick advertising copy than a genuine review.

The book is basically a discussion of why the author believes it is wise to buy silver, and some *very* limited information on ways to go about it. I was looking for something to give more insight into actual trading. On that point, I was strongly disappointed. More and better information can be had with a simple Google search.

Don't be deceived by the 5-star reviews posted here. Ask yourself why someone would write a 5-star review that reads more like slick advertising copy than a genuine review. And isn't it interesting that there are so many 5 star reviews, but only a handful of 4 star reviews? Interesting also is how many of the 5-star reviews were written by people who have never reveiwed anything else, before or since! Especially those which are given to superlatives like "fantastic" and "VERY informative".

I was displeased with my purchase of this book before reading the reviews, but after seeing the obvious way in which so many fake positive reviews have been posted, I'm truly disgusted. The misspellings and writing style in the reviews are oddly reminiscent the book. It's as if the same person wrote them!

There is NOTHING in this book that you can't learn by reading a few online articles. I'll summarize it for you: Silver is a good investment because of the coming devaluation of the dollar, its rarity relative to gold, and the out-of-historical-synch gold:silver price ratio. You can buy silver cheaply and easily with an online trading account using ETFs. You can leverage your position by choosing an ETF that buys silver futures on margin. You can short or double short silver by choosing an ETF that uses that strategy. Buy low, sell high. Be careful because you can also lose a lot of money.

As a trader who has been studying the silver market for years, I find this book very disappointing. Firstly, it contains quite a few obvious mistakes. For example, it said Jim Rogers joined hands with George Soros to bet against Bank of England in the 90s. In fact Rogers had already broken up with Soros in a bitter quarrel in the 80s. Secondly, if you compare the supply and demand data in the book with another source like CPM Group, you will see a lot of discrepancies. I consider CPM Group to be one of the more reliable sources. This author gave me the impression that he didn't check the accuracy of his information carefully. And he didn't cite the sources of his information. I am very doubtful about his data. If you are not familiar with the silver market, it is risky to rely on this book.

While I haven't purchased this book, I had to rate it before proceeding; so I gave it a neutral rating. I can say, with certainty, to all investors new to silver, "Stay away from any kind of paper instruments in silver, like ETFs, unless they are backed by silver bullion, and you can audit it yourself."

These ETF's can be shorted very easily by the bullion banks who have been investigated by regulators on the silver manipulation, since they take up extremely outsized (or concentrated) short positions in the paper silver market.

Silver is rare, its applications are numerous and growing, and it is being hoarded by central banks of the Eastern hemisphere. When the physical supply runs out, the manipulation will end, and the price will go in to orbit.

If you really want to know more about silver, read Ted Butler, David Morgan and GATA.

First off, this book is aimed squarely at beginning investors. Which is what I wanted, but anyone who's already traded stocks or managed investments will likely be happier with more advanced material. This book gives a good overview of the topic, and is a respectable primer for a brand new investor. Enough details are listed to get you started, and the author highly encourages you to continue learning from other sources.

The single best feature of the book is it's common sense, low-pressure approach. The author spends most of the book not selling anything. Instead, he offers practical advice like making sure you understand the mechanics of how different investments work before engaging in them. He is careful to point out that "leveraged" investments increase your potential risk as well as your potential profit and that Day Trading will require a lot more knowledge, time and effort than long term investing. He doesn't offer any magic formulas for success (other than buy low and sell high), but has some suggestions for minimizing risk and developing the right mindset for successful investing.

Alas, at the very end he throws in a pitch for his own "buy my exclusive information" service. Sigh. Although the information in the book seems sound, you are left wondering if the whole thing is just a sales gimmick to sell you a phony a financial service. This both cheapens and makes me distrustful of the entire book (which otherwise seems be be full of good, if basic, knowledge).

Before the sales pitch at the end, the author also turns a little loopy by saying that long term cycles in human civilization are somehow explained by the Mayan Calender (?!?) and that our current woes all date back to Nixon taking the US off the Gold Standard.
