I'm a Huge Ron Paul fan, but.......

....this book is a disappointment, to say the least. It is boring and has several grammatical errors. More than one reference is vague with statements starting with, "as one historian noted...".
When there is a discussion of inflation and deflation, I feel as though mixed messages are being sent about the dangers of both, but the explanations aren't detailed enough to give me the kind of understanding I need to know why deflation, for example, would be bad for an economy. The only conclusion I can make is that if someone was holding inventory he had bought for $2 and now can only competitively sell it for $1, it may lead to the closing of his business. But is this conclusion correct relating to the message in this book, or is there more to the case for gold than I'm picking up?
