Editorial Reviews


If you have ever wondered how the world can get from here to there from the chaos of depreciating paper to a convertible currency worthy of our children and our grandchildren wonder no more. The answer, brilliantly expounded, is between these covers.

America has long needed a modern Alexander Hamilton. In Lewis E. Lehrman, she has finally found him.

--James Grant
Founder and Editor of Grants Interest Rate Observer

Buy it... it is a compelling read and a compelling architecture for a way forward. --Lou Dobbs
Fox Business Network

The time is ripe for Mr. Lehrman s new book. It goes well beyond making a persuasive case for a return to the gold standard and provides a detailed road map for how to get there. When the time comes for a new U.S. administration and Congress to seriously consider monetary reform and it will come sooner rather than later if the Fed pursues its current course Mr. Lehrman's book will serve as a valuable guide. --George Melloan
Former columnist for the Wall Street Journal and author of The Great Money Binge

The True Gold Standard describes a viable alternative monetary regime and is a road map for change. If and when the current monetary system converts to a hard money standard, Lewis Lehrman will be a part of it, directly or in absentia through this book. In that, The True Gold Standard is a valuable read, in all sorts of ways. The gold standard of gold books, if you will. --Paul Brodsky for The American Spectator - June 2013

Lew Lehrman expounds a valuable path toward gold in The True Gold Standard. --George Gilder, interview in The Daily Bell
