I found Doug's book to be both informative and helpful. Like other reviewers stated it starts off with the WHY you should buy physical gold. This is important especially if you don't know what the big deal is. Why is gold is worth so much? The book explains the bigger picture. Chapter 1 talks about the Federal Reserve and politics. Chapter 2 gives you a broader history of the Federal Reserve, and you come to understand just how much power they have over the economy and the US Dollar which is directly tied to the point he is making about gold importance as an investment.

Chapters 3 - 4 cover more of why the financial industry is flawed, especially banking and the stock market. He goes into more depth, but it gives you an idea why it is a good idea to store physical gold in your house as part of a diversified nest egg.

Chapter 5 - 6 covers common misconceptions and directly addresses how you should fit gold into investing (not just personal conjecture as the previous chapters provide).

I found Chapters 7 through 11 to be the most interesting, and I feel they will give 90% of readers the actual information they are looking for, which is the HOW of buying gold. Where to get it, what it's going to cost, how to store it, etc.

Chapter 12 is gold investments which I didn't enjoy but other people will find interesting as they can learn to leverage gold in a 401k.

Chapter 13 covers the actual selling of the gold when you are done holding onto it.

The next section covers silver. I guess my biggest complaint is the Silver part of the book seemed almost an afterthought. Mr. Eberhardt does not go into nearly as much detail.

That being said he does cover silver buying and selling pretty well in 6 chapters.

Anyone who`s given "Buy gold and silver safely" less than 5 stars was either looking for shiny pictures, or searching for "Fools Gold"....Very informative and easy to digest. Truly everything you need to know about buying and selling precious metals without all the inexpensive filler to sift through. Thank You Doug for saving me from all those Financial companys you see advertised on T.V. Sorry Goldline! See ya! Lear Capital and Merit Financial. I`ve talked to them all and they did just what Doug Eberhardt said they would. Try to sell me what they wanted me to buy. This book is as relative today as when it was written. And will make a great reference to turn to year after year. Thanks again Doug! I look forward to doing business with you. P.S. Just hope my enthusiasm doesn`t make my review sound like a paid ad. I`m a real person from Vermont. If not for the fear of people stealing my gold, I`d give my full name. Signed Charlie....P.S.S. Looking forward to your new book "Illusions" of something. Can`t remember. Anyways. Buy this book peeps. You won`t regret it.

I liked that the information was simple to learn and understand for someone who knows nothing about buying or investing in gold and silver. As I am venturing out in this new territory, I am able to have my eyes and ears open and know what to buy and have an idea of how much to buy. Many thanks to the author for deciding to go against the mainstream grain and give the little man a heads up on real money, not worthless paper money. I give five stars!

This is a good read on how to buy gold and silver, all the information makes sense. The first half of the book is all about how we got to this point in history. You have to consider the credit contraction and weak US dollar for what they really are. There is a method to buying gold and this book will help you from getting taken to the cleaners.

I learned quite about about the historical trends in the gold and silver markets from this book. The author makes some interesting suggestions about buying gold and silver.

A must read for those who are realizing our economy might be tanking. The author has provided great informative insight which I found most useful. I have been contemplating the decision to buy gold and silver for months and now I feel ready.
