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. I found Chapter 17 "Gold/Silver" ratios the most interesting.
Overall I recommend the book for anyone interested in investing in physical gold. I think you will get most of your information from chapters 7 - 13, with the rest still being interesting reading.
If you enjoyed this book you may also like Buy And Sell Gold which covers similar topics, but talks more about gold as a business rather than an investment.
Very well written and easy to understand. The first part gives a comprehensive view of how money works in our economic system and why the government is heading us for monetary disaster. The book is non partisan and we'll documented.
The second part tells how to avoid gold dealers that will cheat you.
He makes it clear that gold and silver may be an investment, but is more like insurance against economic collapse.
A must read.
Additionally, the author goes into an extensive discussion early in the book about why to invest in gold, fiat currencies. Decline of the dollar, etc. I really didn't buy the book for that - I have my reasons for considering presides metals. The 2nd half of the book is what gave me the information I was looking for. That is why I gave it just 4 stars.

Although there is a chapter on the subject, it contains poor information. The best advise apart from the obvious of trading the gold with the bullion merchant, was selling it on ebay! Disappointed.
