I cannot recommend this book enough if you are planning on investing in gold. It is perfect for a Beginner. This book is well written, organized with a wealth of information, and very easy to read.

Mr Kosares, who has over 30 years experience in investing gold, gives very good reasons why you may want to invest 10-30% of your portfolio in gold, what form of gold to buy, what to look for as you find a gold firm to purchase from, how to try and prevent the US government from confiscating gold from you as FDR did in 1933, objectively compares gold vs. silver investment, what has to be reported to the IRS, how gold is a winner during inflationary and deflationary times, etc etc.

There is a lot to know about gold investment, and this book is a very good road map to investing in gold successfully. I highly recommend this book.

Kosares wrote an easy to read book that you should have in your library if you own gold or are considering gold as an investment. All the basic "how to buy" information is here plus much more. For example, The chapter titled "G is For Government Debt" is a real eye opener if you want to know how the U.S. dollar got into the mess it is in today. Reading this chapter alone should give you reasons to invest in hard assets as opposed to currency based investments. Kosares is not new to the gold market. He has been writing about gold and educating consumers about this precious metal for many years. In fact, this is the second edition of his book and it appears to have been substantially updated. Bottom line - read "The ABC's" of Gold Investing" and then read it again. There is much wisdom between the covers of this book.

Not being a "savy" gold investor, I wanted to find a book that would provide a good understanding of all the issues surrounding gold investments both for profitability and asset protection. This book is definitely worth the read. It is very informative in covering the history of gold and how it responds with inflation and deflation, explaining different investor objectives, and providing a great overall summary of how to go about investing in gold. This book has provided me the basic knowledge to begin my gold investing. Good book to have in your library.

Relatively short on advice but long on all the reasons why gold should be part of your portfolio. Interesting facts and figures and a very quick read based on the small size of the pages and the short length of the book. If you're already in the gold camp, you can probably do better elsewere in the advice category.

If you are new to gold investing, this is the book you want to own. As a researcher looking at the dynamics of financial crises, and how individuals can protect and grow wealth in such an environment, I own a number of books that discuss gold's merits. Kosares' work provides an excellent overview of gold as a tool for asset preservation and growth. The strategies in the book incorporate the physical commodity rather than paper instruments like mining stocks, so be advised. I highly recommend this easy-to-read investment guide.

I have been a "goldbug" for about 5 years now. I was looking for a book to give my many friends who are becoming new converts to Gold. This is a fine place to start for the novice investor. I recommend this to anyone who may wish to protect assets or add gold to their investments.

Terrific starter book! Lots of nice information that's not found on any of the commercial investing sites. This book will not contribute much to my wealth, and it does not pretend to give us investing advice. It's a fun read, absolutely worth the price, and anyone holding gold (or thinking about it) should read this. I intend to read it over again. Soon.

Michael J. Kosares has presented a product that can be readily read and understood by almost everyone. One does not need to be a PHD, or even a college graduate, to use this book to his or her advantage. Whereas most investment treateses are written for a person with an advanced degree in economics, I was able to read and take his advice to heart from the beginning. Time will tell if my decisions as to what type gold to purchase, and how much of my total investment program should be dedicated to gold purchases, were good decisions, but if they were not, I will not be able to say that a mistaken decision was caused by bad advice contained in "The ABCs Of Gold Investing." In addition, it is an "easy read," which adds to its value for me.
