From the Inside Flap
Not too long ago "money in the bank" meant that something was not only a safe bet, but practically a sure thing, as well. That was then. Today, banks are failing in alarming numbers (according to the FDIC, more than 225 banks in almost 40 states since 2008). And Wall Street continues to go up big one day and down even bigger the next. If your money is in either a bank or the stock market, it's a gamble—and anything but a safe bet, let alone a sure thing. So how does a sophisticated investor respond when questioned about where he's putting his money? If he's traded paper (stocks) for precious metals, he says, "My investments are golden." Are you gambling with your money, or are your investments golden?
In Wealth Building Strategies in Energy, Metals and Other Markets, Chris Waltzek—host of Goldseek.com Radio—provides you with the secrets to successfully investing in an economic environment where anything goes and no one seems to know why or where it will go next. You'll learn Waltzek's proprietary investing system, a proven system built around a portfolio rich in energy commodities and precious metals. Topics include:
Price behavior/trend investing
Why precious metals—specifically, gold—are the ideal insurance plan for any portfolio, and the ideal investment class for years to come
Why peak oil and soaring global demand make energy investments a must-have
How identifying and conquering personal weaknesses can vastly enhance trading discipline and the performance of your portfolio
How, if you're considering purchasing a home, substantial bargains await the patient shopper
Why keeping cash reserves in a home safe is a prudent thing to do
How and why to replace credit cards with an emergency cash fund
Each chapter closes with a key takeaway for investors, as well as expert answers to real questions from listeners of Goldseek.com Radio.
Money management, limiting losses, and trend identification have always served investors well. Today, they are more important than ever. Wealth Building Strategies in Energy, Metals and Other Markets provides you with the tools and tips necessary to profit in today's global economy.

If you could only purchase one investment book that would provide you with the greatest possible return, Wealth Building Strategies is it. It is clearly written in a very easy to understand prose. Chris has no pretenses here and communicates at a level that any reader can comprehend.
I have been listening to Chris's weekly podcast at [...] for several years. During this time I have recovered all of my losses from the 2008 crash and then some. In addition, I have learned a great deal about real estate investing, your home is not an asset, and much more. Chris's guests are all top notch, including, Jimmy Rogers, Marc Faber, Peter Schiff, Gerald Celento and too many more to mention here.
It is well worth subscribing to Chris's free newsletter. I have personally purchased 7 of his recommendations and have realized returns over the past two years of 35 to 125 percent!
There are very few books that have the potential to create a paradigm shift in the readers'minds, but this one rates up there with Benjamin Graham's "Intelligent Investor" and Peter Lynch's "One Up On Wall Street." In fact, I believe this book will give you three upon on Wall Street and that's just before lunch.
I can not recommed this book highly enough.
I have been investing for the past 10 years and was immediately able to put this book to use in order to eliminate some of the mistakes I found myself making over the years. I never really understood why I was making a lot of the same mistakes until I read this book.
After following the author on his weekly internet radio show for the past 4 years I have booked several hundred percent in profits because of the advice he has given.
His show is an apt metaphor for this book: poorly reasoned, self-congratulatory rhetoric rife with filler. On the show, nearly an hour of each week is filled with repetitive music and SNL comedy routines that never change. In the book, pages are filled with dozens of outdated charts passing for "technical analysis". Mr Waltzek's main argument/strategy is that history always repeats: gold went from $35 to $850 from 1970 to 1980...a ~2400% increase. Therefore since gold started in 2001 at $250 it will go to $6000...you guessed it, a 2400% increase. Literally, that is his exact line of reasoning!
On page 80 we find precious, page-long stratagems like Mr. Waltzek's "personal favorite recipe" involving chopping potatoes placed in plastic bowls with olive oil and cooking at 350º for 45 minutes.... I'm not kidding.
At the end of each chapter are transcripts of some phone calls he's taken on his show...including the exact salutations used "Hello caller..."
Reviewers who rated this 5 stars: please identify ONE specific, "wealth building strategy" besides "buy gold".
Save your money and build your own wealth...not Mr. Waltzek's.

Nice Person who really cares about us common people.
