I was left with several questions after reading his book. What is the true value of silver? What is the best way to invest in silver? Finally, can silver be a "great" investment without a monetary component. Morgan presents his information in an objective fashion and although he obviously favors silver as a cornerstone of investing; he does not preach to his audience. Perhaps the sequel will provide greater depth?
The book contain 11 short chapters which takes us from the fundamentals driving the silver sector as the supply and demand in Chapter 1, then the misconception that photography is the major driver of the silver sector (Chapter 3), fraudulent activities of the silver & gold leasing (Chapter 4). David Morgan explains very well, why silver is money and not a commodity in Chapter 6. Chapter 7 is devoted to the new uses for silver and the coming demand squeeze, Then from chapter 8 to 10 he briefly discuss different types of investments alternatives in the sector with bullion and coins, silver & mining stocks and leveraged type of investments. He finishes with some future price projections for silver.
- If you read a book about a sector such as small as silver, you want facts, lots of them... the book sums up what you need to know about silver market that is positive!
- An easy to read book with a good combination of history and economic of the silver sector.
- The price of the book.
- Maybe a more balanced view on the silver market (i.e not so bullish all the time).
Overall i think David Morgan does a good job giving us the skinny on silver in 110 pages. This is one of the few books about the silver sector, and absolutely worth the few hours it takes to read it.
Serious hard assets investor will be excited reading this book. On the other hand for short term speculators this is unfortunately not a book for you, it will only tell how to invest on silver for the years to come and that is unfortunatly not enough for the trader.
Funny thing, I read this book 2 or 3 years ago and mostly forgot about it. But I just listened to a clip of David Morgan on youtube, and he sounded sharp. It got me thinking, 'was this the guy whose lousy book I read?' So I checked on Amazon, and indeed it was, so I had to write a review.
Some things I would have liked to see in a book on silver investing were: a good review of the fundamentals affecting silver; plenty of hard data on historic trends and the current situation; a review of the different ways to invest in silver, with pros and cons for each.
I got none of this. I was angry after reading it because I felt like it was a joke on me. The back cover reinforced this feeling, giving me the impression that whatever he's made or lost in silver, he's making $ off his book and laughing all the way to the bank.
From what I heard in the clip Mr. Morgan might be capable of writing the kind of book I'd like to see. But it looks to me like this book was just a way to create another 'stream of revenue', taking advantage of current interest in precious metals and the ease of slapping together a book in the computer age.
Still haven't found a good book on the topic, so it's the wild west of sifting the internet for info that passes the smell test.
The secret to surviving the next few years is keeping your wealth in real money, not in the U.S. dollar. Buy things that hold their value and are exchangeable all over the world. Commodities such as gold and silver have a world market that transcends national borders, politics, religions, and race. A person may not like someone else's religion, but he'll accept his gold and silver.
One of the reasons why I'm bullish on gold and silver is because the American public is still sound asleep to this asset class. Most Americans have no idea how or where to buy physical gold and silver. The outlets that sell gold and silver I have visited are already low on inventory.
If and when the American public wakes up to the reality that their dollars are not money, but a currency, the panic and stampede will begin. Should that happen, today's prices for gold and silver will look like bargains. Especially for silver.

Book is published by a silver bullion seller, so obviously this is not an unbiased view. Pages have large margins so the amount of information or advertising is limited. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Shawn Sic
